Attorneys representing convicted murderer George W. Huguely V in a wrongful-death suit filed a response to the suit Wednesday in Charlottesville Circuit Court, saying the suit does not present enough factual evidence to support its claims.

James W. Morris III, Matthew D. Green and Melissa Y. York, the Richmond-based attorneys who will represent Huguely in the civil matter, also filed a motion to transfer the venue of the civil trial outside of Charlottesville.

The filings question the “legal sufficiency of the facts alleged” in Sharon Love’s $ 30 million wrongful death lawsuit against Huguely.

Love is the mother of Yeardley Love, whom Huguely was convicted of killing.

In her suit, filed April 26, Love claimed that Huguely failed to use ordinary care, acted with indifference and utter disregard of caution and with a conscious disregard and reckless indifference when he left Yeardley Love alone in her apartment after a physical altercation early on May 3, 2010. Love was found dead in her apartment just hours later.

The newly filed objection says that Sharon Love’s allegations “merely recite the elements of those categories of negligence and state conclusions of law.”

Moreover, new court documents say that “the only facts alleged in the complaint, that defendant entered Love’s apartment and engaged in a physical altercation, which resulted in Love’s injuries and death … do not rise to the level of gross negligence and/or reckless or willful and wanton conduct.”

The filing also says that the wrongful-death suit stated no facts in support of its allegations of assault and battery.

Love filed a second $ 30 million wrongful-death suit in Louisa County Circuit Court on May 1 and listed the commonwealth of Virginia, University of Virginia head men’s lacrosse coach Dom Starsia, associate coach Marc van Arsdale and U.Va. Athletics Director Craig Littlepage as defendants.

Huguely was convicted Feb. 22 of second-degree murder and grand larceny in connection with the death of his ex-girlfriend and fellow lacrosse player.

Huguely’s criminal attorneys will appear in Charlottesville Circuit Court on June 29 to argue their motion, filed May 25, to set aside the verdict and for a new trial.

Huguely is scheduled for formal sentencing Aug. 30.
