The legal hits just keep on coming for Chris and Roberta Laundrie.
Brian Laundrie’s parents just lost another legal request ahead of their trial with Gabby Petito’s parents.
, Judge Hunter W. Carroll denied the Laundrie’s motion to limit the scope of their depositions in the lawsuit filed by Joe Petito and Nichole Schmidt.
He ruled that the motion, which sought to restrict the depositions to the weeks after Gabby’s death and prevent further embarrassment for Chris and Roberta, was “overly narrow.”
“The court notes that there really has been no showing of any prior misconduct by the plaintiffs,” Judge Carroll said during Tuesday’s hearing on the motion.
“We normally would not issue such an order without either some showing of something going on other than that the fact that there’s a lot of media scrutiny,” Judge Carroll continued.
