Requests by missing girl’s parents too broad

– Two men who were with a 20-year-old Indiana University student before she vanished in 2011 say in court documents that her parents are on a “fishing expedition” in their efforts to obtain evidence to use in a lawsuit against them.

Lauren Spierer’s parents are seeking private cellphone and academic records that have nothing to do with her disappearance, attorneys for Jason Rosenbaum and Corey Rossman say in court documents filed over the past four days in federal court in Indianapolis.

Robert and Mary Charlene Spierer’s attorneys have subpoenaed wireless phone service providers Verizon and AT&T, Indiana University and others for information regarding Rosenbaum and Rossman that is unrelated to the case, the men’s attorneys claim in separate briefs asking the court to quash the subpoenas.

The Spierers want cellphone records spanning 134 days before and after June 3, 2011, when their daughter disappeared following a night partying with friends in Bloomington, the men claim.

They say the Spierers are also seeking both men’s academic and disciplinary records from Indiana University, which the men argue are private.

Rosenbaum and Rossman say the information the Spierers are seeking is irrelevant.

“It is clear that this is nothing more than a fishing expedition,” Rosenbaum’s attorneys said in a brief filed Monday. Rossman’s brief was filed Friday.
