CLEVELAND- The two Cleveland police officers named in the wrongful death suit of Tanisha Anderson are asking the court for a 30-day extension to file responsive pleading in the case.

Family members called police to their house on Nov. 12 for a disturbance. Anderson, 37, agreed to be taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, then started to resist police. She died while in police custody and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled her death a homicide.

In court documents filed in the U.S. District Court Northern District of Ohio on Wednesday, the two officers, Scott Aldridge and Bryan Myers, refute the family’s allegations of excessive force.

The officers deny pushing Anderson into the zone car, slamming her to the sidewalk and telling family members she was sleeping. According to court records, they also did not prevent the woman’s family from her getting her medical attention.

Aldridge and Myers asked for the extension until August 5, 2015.

Last month, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office turned the investigation into Anderson’s death over to the sheriff’s office.
