Circuit Court Judge Gina C. Higgins has yet to grant a motion filed by the city of Memphis and Shelby County seeking to dismiss a suit against the city and county regarding thousands of untested rape kits. Three plaintiffs say Memphis and the county failed to responsibly handle testing of the kits. Virginia Bozeman, attorney for the county, argued Tuesday in court that the county is immune because the people involved were not county employees. Higgins said she will rule at a later date on the motions, The Commercial Appeal reports.
