WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — There’s no need to go to trial to resolve a civil suit stemming from a death in the New Hanover County Jail back in 2003. County Attorney Wanda Copley says a deal has been reached between the family of Gary Rummer and the county’s insurer.

The suit against the county and several deputies has been dismissed, but Copley says her office has not received any paperwork outlining the details of the settlement.

Rummer died after suffering severe injuries while deputies at the New Hanover County Jail tried to restrain him.
