Adel - The Georgia Attorney General's Office has dismissed the case against Reed Bingham Park Manager Chet Powell.
In December, the attorney for the family of 20 year-old Curtis Wright announced they planned to appeal the federal courts decision to toss out their wrongful death suit against Powell.
Judge Hugh Lawson ruled late last year that there was not enough evidence to support their claims.
However the family missed the deadline to file for that appeal.
Powell tried to arrest Wright in December 2005 for breaking into a vending machine.
Wright tried to stab him with a screwdriver and reached for Powell's gun.
Powell shot him in the chest.
The suit was filed after the GBI cleared Powell of all wrongdoing.
