INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- A lawsuit against one of three men who were with missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer on the night of her disappearance in 2011 was dismissed.

Federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt dismissed the negligence suit Monday, filed against Michael Beth by Spierer's parents, who alleged Bath, Jason Rosenbaum and Corey Rossman owed their daughter a "duty of care" on the night she went missing in Bloomington, Ind.

All three men were with Spierer, 20, at various times on the night she was last seen, the suit said, noting she was "extremely intoxicated to the point of incapacitation" and the men did not do enough to ensure she returned to her home safely.

Pratt's decision said Bath was not negligent toward Spierer, and added Spierer had her own responsibility to take care of herself, regardless of her condition.

Spierer went missing on June 3, 2011, and was last seen partying at several apartments and at a Bloomington bar that night, the newspaper said.
