EDGEMONT - A judge has ruled that part of a lawsuit can stand against the two men who last saw Edgemont native Lauren Spierer, who has been missing for more than two years.

Yesterday, the judge ruled that a portion of the negligence suit that Spierer's parents have can stand. This means Spierer's family can sue former Indiana University students Jason Rosenbaum and Corey Rossman. The pair is being accused of providing alcoholic beverages to someone they knew was already intoxicated.

Spierer disappeared in June of 2011 and was last seen three blocks from her college apartment. She was 20 years old at the time of her disappearance.
