Utah officer did not kill Ute tribal member after 2007 chase, appeals court rules

 


VERNAL — A federal appeals court has ruled that there is no evidence to support a Utah family's allegation that their son was murdered by a police officer in 2007 at the end of a high-speed chase.

In a 37-page opinion handed down Tuesday, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell's decision to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the parents of Todd Rory Murray against the state of Utah, Uintah County, the city of Vernal, and 11 current and former law enforcement officers.

A panel of three appellate court judges said Murray's parents failed to prove any of the officers illegally seized their son, so their remaining constitutional claims "unravel from there."
