LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) – A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed over claims a Lowndes County bus driver assaulted two students.
The lawsuit contended the two students were picked up and thrown by the driver, John Love, in February of 2013.
They say Love became upset over the conduct of some students on the bus and singled the two out.
The lawsuit claims the students were injured in the incident.
In his ruling Monday, the federal magistrate says the plaintiffs failed to show for a pre-trial conference and then failed to provide a reason why the case was not moving forward.
He says it is not the first time the plaintiffs have missed scheduled appearances or depositions in the case.
The case was dismissed with prejudice, barring it from being refiled with the court.
