WINSLOW, Maine (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed most of the claims in a lawsuit brought by a Maine man who says excessive force was used against him during an arrest.

William Sadulsky filed the lawsuit against three officers in 2014. He claimed they used excessive force, illegally entered his home and unlawfully detained him while responding to a noise complaint at his Winslow home in 2012. He says his hands were raised when police used a stun gun on him.

The Morning Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1iBf05g ) Thursday’s order affirmed a recommended August decision. Only claims of excessive force and negligent infliction of emotional distress are to go to trial.

An attorney for Sadulsky declined to comment.

An attorney representing the town says the trial will likely be scheduled for December or January.
