$10 M Lawsuit Against Augusta County Thrown Out

Posted: Updated:

A federal judge has tossed out a woman's $10 million lawsuit against Augusta County.

Judy Desetti of Fishersville was convicted in 2010 of assaulting a county sheriff's deputy.

Her lawsuit - filed last July - claims prosecutors and the sheriff's office wrongly charged her, and falsified evidence. The suit named nine different defendants, but was never served on any of them.

After repeatedly warning Desetti to move the case forward, a judge finally dismissed it.
