Zimmermann family drops federal lawsuit

By Ashley Gatz

MADISON -- In Marshfield, the parents of a murdered UW-Madison student drop their lawsuit.

An attorney for the family of Marshfield native Brittany Zimmermann has filed a papers in federal court which say there's an agreement to dismiss the lawsuit against Dane County and a 911 dispatcher.

But an attorney representing Dane County says the family still reserves the right to bring legal action in state court.

Zimmermann was found murdered in her apartment in April.

Her parents allege the dispatcher hung up on their daughter when she placed a 911 call the day she died, then failed to call back as is standard procedure.
