Town Seeking to Have Wrongful Death Suit Dismissed

ELKTON, Va. (WHSV) -- The town of Elkton is asking a judge to dismiss a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the estate of a woman who disappeared in 2003.

A hearing on the town's motion is set for Thursday in Rockingham County Circuit Court.

In the lawsuit filed by the estate of Rachel Good and her father, Cary S. Good, they levy the claims that Adam Williams murdered Rachel with malice aforethought.

The family also alleges that the Elkton Police Department was, at that time, operating a criminal racket involving illegal drugs and illicit sexual activity.

The Elkton Police Department and town of Elkton are claiming in their response to the lawsuit that the statue of limitations have expired in wrongful death lawsuit.

The defendants also claiming sovereign immunity, which is when a municipality is immune from responsibility for action of a few bad people.
