Case Against BCSO Deputies Dismissed by Federal District Court Judge

Today, a jury in Federal District Court in Raleigh found in favor of Brunswick County Sheriff’s Deputies James Sheehan and Brian Carlisle.

The jury answered a series of questions about the facts of the shooting and concluded that George Cooper had fired a shotgun at Deputy Sheehan. Federal District Court Judge James Dever then dismissed the case on the grounds that, based on the jury’s findings of fact, Deputies Sheehan and Carlisle were entitled to use deadly force to defend themselves and therefore could not be liable to Mr. Cooper.

Cooper alleged that Sheehan and Carlisle used excessive force in an incident that occurred on May 2, 2007, at his home near Leland. Attorneys Christopher Geis, Sonny Haynes, and Jamie Dean, and paralegal Marie Rodden, of Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice in Winston-Salem represented the deputies.
