Judge Tosses David Camm's Suit Over Murder Trials

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed against prosecutors by a former Indiana State Police trooper who was convicted twice but later acquitted of killing his wife and two children.

Judge Tanya Walton Pratt sided with the prosecutors and investigators who were sued by David Camm, who was seeking $30 million on allegations of malicious prosecution and conspiracy to violate his constitutional rights.

Camm was acquitted in 2013 in his third murder trial in the 2000 shooting deaths of his 35-year-old wife, Kim Camm, and their children, 7-year-old Brad and 5-year-old Jill.   Two earlier convictions were overturned on appeal.   Camm spent 13 years in prison while maintaining his innocence. 

Camm attorney Garry Adams says he intends to ask a federal appeals court to review the judge's ruling.
