A federal judge has dismissed the town of Collierville from a lawsuit filed by the ex-wife of slain basketball star Lorenzen Wright. "Involuntary dismissal for failure to prosecute is appropriate in this case," U.S. District Judge Samuel Mays Jr. wrote in a seven-page opinion. "Wright has not taken any action to advance the prosecution of this case since November of 2011. "
Sherra Wright's suit claims Collierville police failed to properly investigate her ex-husband's disappearance. It also claims Germantown dispatchers mishandled a 911 call from Lorenzen Wright's phone the night he was killed.
