Wrongful Death Lawsuit against Huguely Back in Court System
A wrongful death lawsuit against a former University of Virginia student is back in the court system.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A wrongful death lawsuit against a former University of Virginia student is back in the court system.
But this time, three counts are dropped.
George Huguely is the former UVA lacrosse player who killed his girlfriend Yeardley Love back in 2010.
Love's family is still seeking more than $30 million. However, this time they've amended their complaint from five to two counts.
The family is no longer seeking compensation based on negligence, gross negligence, and willful and wanton negligence.
Earlier this year, the Loves decided to withdraw the original lawsuit after four federal judges ruled on May 15 that the insurance company doesn't have to compensate them for their daughter's death.
The family is seeking a trial by jury in this matter.
Huguely is currently serving 23 years in prison for second-degree murder.
