    There is more to this case than just how they enforce restraining orders. The Press simplified this here to a level where most people would not support the suit. The suit was over whether they deliberately did not enforce the order and therefore were not doing their jobs and the suit covers whether the citizenry can sue the police force for literally not doing their jobs. Cops are often protected, while on the job, from any lawsuits. This particular suit is due to perceived inaction and whether people can sue if the cops literally do not do what they are supposed to.

    If they rule in favor of the Gonzales family they can bring a suit, there is no gaurantee that they will win. The cops may prove that they did their jobs and that there is therefore no evidence of negligence on the part of the police dept. This whole thing is whether people can sue when the cops seem to be deliberately ignoring their work.
