SAN JOSE, Calif. — The family of a drug suspect who died after he was shot with a Taser during a confrontation with San Jose police has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city and the device's manufacturer.

Officers stopped Prince Swayzer III, 38, of San Jose because they believed he was involved in drug trafficking, police have said. Swayzer became combative after being pulled over at North Third and Hensley streets on Sept. 2, 2008, and resisted arrest, police said.
