Blackmore attorney seeks judge to rule in officer's favor

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock police officer accused of using excessive force in an ongoing civil trial last week and this week is asking a judge to let him off the hook. The attorney for Officer Marsh Blackmore has asked the judge to rule in the officer's favor even before the jury renders a verdict.

Lubbock resident L.J. McCallan claims Blackmore's use of a taser back in April of 2006 was a violation of his rights. Blackmore's motion says no reasonable jury could rule against him based on the evidence. 

Meanwhile, jury deliberations are still scheduled to continue Tuesday.
