Family of Slain UVa Student Refiles $30M Lawsuit Against Ex

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP)- The family of a slain University of Virginia student has refiled a $30 million wrongful death lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend, who was convicted of killing her.           

Yeardley Love's family filed the lawsuit against former Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely V on Nov. 27. It seeks compensation for assault and battery, as well as punitive damages.           

Love's mother, Sharon Love, filed the original suit after Huguely was convicted in 2012 of second-degree murder in the 2010 death. It was dropped in June after an appeals court upheld a decision that Chartis Property Casualty Co., doesn't have to pay a $6 million insurance policy to Huguely, thus decreasing possible damages available to Sharon Love.           

Huguely is serving a 23-year sentence in prison. The report didn't include comment from his lawyers.
