A Georgia city has settled a wrongful death suit filed by the family of a man who died in April after two police officers used Tasers on him more than a dozen times, their attorney said on Thursday. Attorney Chris Stewart said the settlement was for the maximum covered by the insurance policy of the suburban Atlanta city of East Point. He did not disclose the amount, but city officials told the Atlanta Journal Constitution the maximum is $1 million. "During the course of settlement negotiations, the city confirmed that every East Point officer who has been issued a Taser has been retrained on the use of the device since the incident," Stewart said in a statement.
