Judge: Harringtons’ Civil Suit to Move Forward

Posted: Updated:

A civil suit Morgan Harrington's family filed against the security company that was working at John Paul Jones Arena the night she disappeared will move forward, according to the Daily Progress.

The Daily Progress reports a Charlottesville judge will allow the Harringtons' civil lawsuit against Regional Marketing Concepts to move forward in circuit court.

The judge filed his decision Tuesday and said RMC may have held some responsibility in the events that led up to Morgan's murder. However, the judge did throw out a portion of the suit accusing RMC of breaching contract by not protecting Morgan from criminal behavior.
