BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A judge has ordered a new trial to determine whether a mid-Michigan man who was fatally shot by police was provided timely medical treatment.
U.S. District Judge Thomas Ludington granted the request by attorneys for Steven Scozzari, whose brother, William Scozzari, was killed after a confrontation with Clare police in 2007.
Steven Scozzari's attorneys say Chief Dwayne Miedzianowski and Officer Jeremy McGraw denied William Scozzari's right to receive timely medical care and that their conduct "was the proximate cause of his death."
Jurors in a civil trial cleared the officers and didn't award monetary damages to Scozzari.
