Bright and early in New Orleans this morning, in the West Courtroom, two teams of attorneys will be arguing a Central Texas case before a three-judge panel from the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The judges will decide an appeal of a civil lawsuit filed by the family of a Navy veteran who was shot and killed by a Bell County Sheriff’s Department deputy just over three years ago.
