Parents of IU's Lauren Spierer sue 3 over actions

BLOOMINGTON (AP) — An attorney for the parents of a missing Indiana University student say their lawsuit against three men who were her the night she was last seen is meant at seeking answers about what happened more than two years ago.

The federal lawsuit claims the three fellow students supplied alcohol to an intoxicated Lauren Spierer and failed to care for her. The 20-year-old from Greenburgh, N.Y., vanished June 3, 2011, after a night of partying in downtown Bloomington.

Attorney Jason Barclay tells The Herald-Times and The Indianapolis Star that Robert and Charlene Spierer are using the legal system "to obtain answers to questions that have gone unanswered for too long."

The Associated Press left messages Thursday for attorneys for the three men seeking comment on the lawsuit.
