Cleveland has asked that the lawsuit filed by the family of
against the city be dismissed.
The suit says during Anderson's arrest two CPD officers, Scott Aldridge and Bryan Myers, used excessive force and violated the civil rights of the 37-year-old.
Anderson, who had mental health issues, died last November while being restrained by police. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner ruled her death a homicide.
Meantime, Cleveland's Director of Public Safety Michael McGrath has yet to decide whether or not Officers Aldridge and Myers violated at least a half dozen department policies, including use of force, when they arrested her.
McGrath got the case last month and has up to 90 days to make a decision on whether disciplinary action is warranted.
