LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Drop the lawsuit -- that's the call of one of the men being sued by Lauren Spierers' parents.
Attorneys for Michael Beth say the case should be dismissed because there is no proof the missing IU student has been hurt or killed. Indiana law requires a person to be, "inexplicably absent for a continuous period of seven years" to be presumed dead.
Spierer was last seen after a night of drinking in June 2011.
Beth claims he tried to get the then 20-year-old to sleep on his couch that night, but she refused. That's when he says he took her to another man's apartment, and she hasn't been seen since.
