Judge: Hormon Lawsuit Can Go Forward
A Portland judge has ruled that a lawsuit against the stepmother of a missing Oregon boy can go forward.
Judge Henry Kantor said Wednesday a two-year delay sought by Terri Horman, stepmother of Kyron Horman, wouldn't serve a purpose.
She sought the delay, saying the suit would be a proxy for a criminal investigation. Detectives have focused on her, although they haven't called her a suspect. The lawsuit was filed by Desiree Young, Kyron's biological mother.
Terri Horman was the last person known to have seen Kyron. He was 7 when he disappeared June 4, 2010.The suit will proceed Thursday with a deposition of Terri Horman's biological son, James Moulton.
