INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A federal judge says part of a lawsuit can stand against two men who were with an Indiana University student when she disappeared in 2011.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt ruled Monday that the parents of Lauren Spierer can sue former IU students Jason Rosenbaum and Corey Rossman on counts alleging negligence and damages for providing drinks to someone who already was intoxicated.
The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1cP8xJg ) Pratt dismissed a third count alleging the loss of a child's services because the 20-year-old Spierer was an adult when she disappeared.
Charlene and Robert Spierer of Greenburgh, N.Y., sued the men for not ensuring their incapacitated daughter returned safely home in 2011 after both had provided alcoholic drinks to her. She has never been found.
