Lauren Spierer went missing June 3 in Bloomington, Ind.

The parents of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer have asked a judge to allow their lawsuit against the last three people to see their daughter alive continue.

Spierer disappeared June 3, 2011, after a night of drinking and partying in downtown Bloomington.

Rob and Charlene Spierer have filed a wrongful death suit against Corey Rossman, Jason Rosenbaum and Michael Beth. But attorneys for the defendants say there’s no proof Spierer is dead. A person cannot be declared legally dead in Indiana until they’ve been missing for seven years.

Spierers’ parents say there’s enough circumstantial evidence to continue pursuing their wrongful death suit. They’ve asked the judge to move the suit to the discovery phase so Rossman, Rosenbaum and Beth have to answer questions about the night Lauren Spierer disappeared.

A hearing in federal court is scheduled for later this month.
