TAOS, N.M. — A woman who was jolted with a Taser while handcuffed has filed a lawsuit in an attempt to hold the town of Taos accountable for what she claims was excessive force on the part of its police force.

This is the second court case filed on behalf of Felicia Erickson. It names three police officers and the town as defendants, and claims Erickson's rights were violated when she was arrested and Tasered by police earlier this year.
