LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The City of Louisville has been dismissed from a lawsuit stemming from the mob violence on March 22, 2014, according to court documents.

In a lawsuit filed in March, a family claims three young men -- who had previously been granted a settlement from the city for being wrongfully arrested -- were part of a mob of teenagers who attacked them as they sat in traffic near the intersection of First and Jefferson Streets.

The family also claims Louisville Metro Police did not sufficiently alert the public to the dangerous situation downtown as the mob violence occurred despite knowing of the possibility for harm to citizens in such situations.

Viola Loeffler and Ronald Carter filed the lawsuit against the three young men, Louisville Metro Police and the City of Louisville.

However, a motion to remove the city from the lawsuit was granted by a Jefferson Circuit Court judge March 30.
