Brian Laundrie’s parents to face jury for ‘knowing their son murdered Gabby Petito during search for her’
The Metro says Gabby Petito’s family has won the right to sue the parents of Brian Laundrie, a Florida judge decided, saying the Laundrie family attorney made ‘objectively outrageous’ statements during the nationwide search for Gabby.
Judge Hunter Carroll denied a motion to dismiss the case Thursday, writing: ‘If the facts of this case truly were about the silence with no affirmative act by the Laundries, the Court would have resolved this case in the Laundries’ favor on the concept of legal duty.’
‘But they did not stay silent,’ the judge wrote, according to The Sun.
Instead of telling law enforcement officials what they knew about Gabby’s disappearance and eventual death, the lawsuit claims the Laundries hid behind their own legal council, attorney Steven Bertolino.
