Civil suit filed by Halbach family against killers dropped

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A civil lawsuit filed against Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey by the victim's family has been dropped.

Both men are currently serving life prison terms for killing Teresa Halbach in 2006.

The family of Halbach filed the lawsuit that year, but those proceedings have been on hold while both men appealed their convictions.    

A hearing for the lawsuit was scheduled for Monday.

However, the Halbach family released a statement Friday which reads in part:

"While we continue to be affected by the loss of Teresa, we know that following through on the pursuit of the civil case would likely be a time-consuming, painful experience. We feel that now is the right time to move on from this and to continue to live life like Teresa."
