Judge declines to dismiss lawsuit over slaying

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A judge has declined to dismiss a gated residential community in Lexington from a lawsuit over the death of Amanda Ross, who was gunned down outside her home by former state lawmaker Steve Nunn.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Judge James Ishmael determined on Wednesday that "there are issues of fact that preclude summary judgment."

Ross' mother, Diana M. Ross, sued Opera House Square Townhouse Association, claiming it allowed Nunn access after her daughter told board members she had taken out an emergency protective order against Nunn.

Opera House Square argued that it wasn't negligent and took reasonable action to accommodate a request from Ross for more security.

Nunn pleaded guilty to murder in 2011 for fatally shooting Ross after she ended their engagement.
