Men: Requests by Spierer parents too broad

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two men who were with a 20-year-old Indiana University student before she vanished in 2011 say her parents’ efforts to obtain evidence against them is a “fishing expedition.”

Jason Rosenbaum and Corey Rossman say in court documents Lauren Spierer’s parents have subpoenaed private cellphone and academic records that have nothing to do with the Greenburgh, N.Y., native’s disappearance.

Court documents say the Spierers want cellphone records spanning 134 days before and after the night their daughter disappeared following a night partying with friends in Bloomington. They say her parents are also seeking both men’s academic records.

The Spierers’ lawsuit filed last year claims Rossman and Rosenbaum gave Spierer alcohol and failed to make sure she returned safely to her Bloomington apartment. Their attorney says the men’s claims hold no merit. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
