EL PASO, Texas — A judge in West Texas has dismissed a $25 million wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of a 15-year-old Mexican boy killed by a Border Patrol agent.
Senior U.S. District Judge David Briones on Aug. 11 threw out the lawsuit against the U.S. government over the June 7, 2010, shooting of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande.
The El Paso Times reports Thursday that Briones dismissed the case because the boy was not shot on U.S. soil.
Family attorney Bob Hilliard has told The Associated Press that he'll appeal.
