Extension requested in lawsuit against Sherman Police Department

By  | 

SHERMAN, TX -- An extension has been requested in the lawsuit against the Sherman Police Department.

The attorney representing the City of Sherman, Darrell Noga, says he's asked for an extension to respond to the lawsuit filed by Linda Surratt.

In the lawsuit, Surrat accuses multiple Sherman Police Officers of using deadly and excessive force in the death of her sister, Lesa, back in August of 2013.

Noga says he has started his investigation into the case and says it will be about 2 weeks before a response from the city is delivered.
