A former FBI agent who filed a $2.2 million federal lawsuit against the FBI claiming retaliation and racial discrimination lost her case, WFMJ-NBC reports.

U.S. District Judge Benita Pearson dismissed the case, saying the former agent, Sheila Lawson, never made herself available for depositions.

Lawson, who worked for the FBI between 2002 and 2006, has been largely inaccessible during the case, the WFMJ reported.

Lawson was acting as her own attorney.

Family of Woman Killed by Border Patrol Agent Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

A U.S. Border Patrol agent who shot and killed a mother of five as he was pulled away on the hood of her car has a long history of misconduct, her family said in a wrongful termination suit against the agency, the Associated Press reports.

The suit, filed Friday on behalf of Valeria “Munique” Tachiquin Alvadardo, claims the agent, Justin Tackett, 34, was suspended four times for misconduct and should not have been working on the street.

The alleged misconduct, which includes crashing a patrol car and violating suspects’ rights, occurred in the nearly four years he worked as an Imperial County sheriff’s deputy.

According to the AP, Tackett received a termination warning before quitting in 2003.

On Sept. 28, border patrol agents said Alvarado deliberately ran into Tackett and drove off with him on her hood.
