In the days after the death of his mother, Robert Lee Miller filed a lawsuit against the city of San Diego, claiming the city’s use of his father’s ashes violated his rights as a child.
In the years since, Miller has been a frequent guest on Fox News, where he’s been joined by conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh.
He was the first guest on Sean Hannity’s radio show in 2014.
Miller, a San Diego native who grew up in San Diego County, died at age 48 in May.
His attorney, Jeffrey B. Smith, declined to comment for this article.
Miller’s mother, Barbara Miller, filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against San Diego in 2014 alleging her son was killed by a city police officer.
The suit also alleged that her son had been arrested twice for marijuana possession and that he was homeless.
The lawsuit cited the city and police department’s failure to provide medical treatment for Miller, who was homeless, and his inability to find employment as a result of his mental illness.
The case went to trial in October, and a jury found in favor of the city, ruling in favor in October.
But after months of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty in March.
Smith said that, since then, Miller had been contacted by several people who were seeking information about the case and that his family had received numerous letters, phone calls, and messages.
He said he was unaware of any effort by Miller to contact a lawyer, although Miller has made efforts to reach out to a lawyer.
Smith also declined to say whether the city had ever attempted to contact Miller.
The lawsuit alleges that, according to the city documents, the department tried to contact him in April, but that Miller was unwilling to contact them because of the pending trial.
The San Diego City Attorney’s Office did not respond to a request for comment.
Miller was a graduate of the University of Southern California and a graduate assistant at the law school of the Southern Methodist University.
He attended the University Of Southern California Law School, and was a member of the faculty of the law schools at UC Davis and the University OF California at Los Angeles.
