A civil lawsuit filed in connection with the death of Morgan Harrington will proceed in Charlottesville Circuit Court. Retired Judge Jay Swett has ruled that the case against Regional Marketing Concepts can move forward. Dan and Gil Harrington (pictured) filed the suit against the company that provided security at the Metallica concert at John Paul Jones Arena in October 2009. Morgan Harrington disappeared at the concert and her body was found several months later in southern Albemarle. The Daily Progress reports Judge Swett determined there could be enough evidence that RMC might be negligent in not allowing Harrington to get back into the arena even though she was injured and incapacitated. Part of the lawsuit alleging that RMC breached its contract by not protecting her from criminal behavior was thrown out. The lawsuit filed over a year ago is asking for $3.9 million in damages.
