EASTON - A federal judge has given the green light to a lawsuit blaming several local police departments for the death of a man four years ago.

Gonzalo Guizan was shot to death during a police raid at his friend's home in Easton.

The lawsuit claims the Southwest Regional Emergency Response Team, which includes officers from Darien, Easton and Wilton, used unreasonable force.

The judge also removed some names from the lawsuit, saying they were not involved in raid.
