Charlottesville (WSLS)  A Charlottesville judge allows Harrington's civil lawsuit against Regional Marketing Concepts to move forward.

Judge Jay Swett filed his decision Tuesday and said RMC may have held some responsibility in the events that led up to Morgan Harrington's murder. 

Judge Swett wrote in court documents that there may have been some negligence, "when it was obvious to RMC employees that she was injured and incapacitated".

Mother Gil Harrington says this is a step in the right direction. She hopes this will improve security standards and transparency.

"We're closing in on five years that Morgan was abducted and killed, but it's still sharp," mother Gil Harrington says. "I don't want any other girl or any other family to have to go through this."

Court documents filed on the civil suit allege RMC employees did not let Morgan back into John Paul Jones Arena even though she was bleeding from her face.
