Tasing Case Returns To Court

Posted:

A tasing suit against the City and a Lubbock Police officer is back in court, more than a year after a military deployment delayed the case.

The military called Officer Marsh Blackmore back to duty in May of 2007. At the time, Blackmore was involved in a lawsuit with L.J. McCallan. McCallan says Officer Blackmore used excessive force, tasing him several times during this traffic stop in July of 2006. Blackmore says McCallan ignored commands to get on the ground, so he used minimal force to get McCallan to comply.

Due to Blackmore's deployment, federal judge Sam Cummings postponed the case. A court order filed Monday says Blackmore returned from active duty on the 22nd. Now, Cummings has reinstated the case on the court's docket.
