The wrongful death lawsuit of a man who died after being tased by city police is set to begin on May 5th.
On April 16, 2006, Officer Matt Doherty responded to a domestic dispute at a house, in the 4400 block of Jarvis. Doherty tased Juan Nunez III, who died a short time later. An autopsy showed he died when he fell after being tased, as well as from acute intoxication.
Nunez's family is suing the City of Lubbock, saying Doherty used excessive force."
