(Salt Lake City, KSL News) -- A judge has dismissed Weber County Sheriff Brad Slater and a supervisor from a lawsuit claiming that three deputies were liable for the death of a traffic suspect who had trouble breathing when he was hog-tied.
The suspect, Glen Lutz, died on October 16, 1999.
The judge also ruled that the deputies weren't legally required to revive Lutz with cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Lyon acted Friday in the $27 million suit filed by the family of Glen Lutz, whose death was captured on videotape by a neighbor.
Lutz's attorney tried to argue that the deputies were negligent for failing to come to Lutz's aid.
