COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - A federal judge has dismissed a civil lawsuit against the City of Columbus.
The city was the last remaining party in the lawsuit filed by Ricky Ball’s family in 2016.
In October 2015, Ball was shot and killed by former Columbus police officer Canyon Boykin.
The federal judge has not given a reason for dismissing the lawsuit. However, court records show several settlement hearings have taken place.
But there isn’t any indication if one has been reached.
The judge did order each party to pay for their own fees and costs associated with the lawsuit.
Last month, the judge dismissed Boykin and former police chief Tony Carleton from the lawsuit.
