Tasing Lawsuit Transferred to Lubbock Court

A lawsuit involving a taser-related death has been moved back to Lubbock.  Juan Nunez the III died Easter Sunday, after being tased by police. An autopsy showed that the death was caused by a combination of the tasing, an injury to the head and alcohol intoxication.

Nunez's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city in July, but a Lubbock Grand Jury declined to indict in the case.

So in December, the family filed a new lawsuit for civil rights violation in an Amarillo federal court. Thursday, the case was transferred back to Lubbock.
