Civil case resumes in Katrina burned body case
NEW ORLEANS - A judge has officially revived a civil lawsuit against New Orleans officials over the death of a man who was shot and killed by a police officer - and whose body was burned - after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The lawsuit by relatives of Henry Glover had been put on hold while federal criminal cases against former New Orleans police officers proceeded. Those cases are over and court records show a federal judge recently ruled that the civil case can proceed.
Former police officer Gregory McRae is serving a sentence of more than 11 years on charges related to the burning of Glover's body.
Former officer David Warren was acquitted after testifying he thought he saw a gun in Glover's hand when he shot Glover.
