Judge Rules Comstock Civil Suit Can Proceed

Murdered book collector Rolland Comstock's adopted daughter can proceed with a civil suit against her mother - Comstock's ex-wife - a Missouri judge ruled on Thursday. While Alberta Comstock's attorney argued that the civil suit should not proceed until (and if) criminal charges are filed against his client, judge Michael Cordonnier said that the civil suit could move forward even in the absence of criminal charges.

The attorney for Faith Stocker, who filed the civil suit, said he believes they have enough evidence to proceed with the civil case, even as Green County sheriff Jim Arnott continues his investigation.
