When Ammar Harris gets back to Las Vegas to face triple murder charges, he's got one more legal battle to deal with. On Monday, the family of cab driver Michael Boldon filed a civil lawsuit against him. 

The lawsuit comes on the same day Harris was expected to be ordered back to Las Vegas. Instead, Harris' public defender asked the court for an identity hearing. In ten days, Harris will be back in court where a judge will determine if the man arrested Thursday near Los Angeles is really Ammar Harris.

Boldon's brother made the trip to Los Angeles to see his brother's accused killer in court.

District Attorney Steve Wolfson says the delay in extradition won't change a thing for Harris. It just buys him some time. 

The shooting got national attention. Harris is accused to shooting Kenny Cherry.  Cherry lost control of his car and crashed into Boldon's cab killing him and his passenger Sandi Sutton.
