WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court won’t allow a lawsuit against two law enforcement officers who used stun guns against a Georgia man who later died.

The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from the parents of James Christopher Allen, who died after a Bacon County deputy and an Alma police officer stunned him multiple times.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had agreed with a lower court judge who refused to let Allen’s parents sue the officers for his death. The man’s parents said officers knew that Allen had mental issues and substance abuse problems, and that he was compliant and nonthreatening before he was stunned.

The officers said Allen attacked one of them, saying he was a demon.
