Huguely Defense Wants Lawsuit Suspended

Posted:

Charlottesville, VA - Defense attorneys for George Huguely say a wrongful death lawsuit against him should be suspended until the criminal case ends.

They filed a motion this week in Charlottesville Circuit Court asking a judge to stay the $30 million lawsuit.

The former UVA lacrosse player was convicted in February of killing Yeardley Love in 2010.

If the civil case goes to trial before the criminal case is finalized, the motion argues that Huguely's Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination could be violated.
