GALVESTON — The city of Galveston and Galveston County were dismissed from a lawsuit brought by relatives of a man who died after police subdued him with an electrical stun gun.

On behalf of relatives of Raymond Luther Allen, 34, attorney Anthony G. Buzbee filed a suit in March against Taser International, the city and the county, claiming a Galveston police officer and deputy used excessive force.

Buzbee, citing a full plate with BP litigation, withdrew from the case, which was then picked up by attorney Benjamin Russell Roberts of the Pinkerton Law Firm of Houston.
