FORT WORTH -- The wounds Dallas suffered on the tragic night of July 7th have yet to fully heal.

The proof of that was made official Monday when Rick Zamarripa, father of slain officer Patrick Zamarripa, filed a 43-page lawsuit against Black Lives Matter and other individual activists.

Rick is seeking up to $550 million in damages from the organizers named in the suit who he says incited a "war on police" that eventually led to the death of his son.

NewsFix obtained a copy of the lawsuit, which lists Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam, Reverend Al Sharpton and the New Black Panthers party among the defendants.

Absent from the lawsuit is the Next Generation Action Network, the organization instrumental in organizing the July 7th protest.

In a brief phone interview with Rick, he expressed that he's just looking for justice for his son.

A statement released by the Patrick Zamarripa foundation distances itself from Rick's lawsuit saying it "does not reflect the views and beliefs of Ms. Valerie Zamarripa or the Patrick Zamarripa Foundation."

Rick says that at this time, he can't comment on any other details involved in the lawsuit.
