Attorneys for George Huguely V are asking for a venue change in a civil lawsuit filed by the family of Yeardley Love.
The former University of Virginia lacrosse player from Chevy Chase was convicted in February of killing his on-again, off-again girlfriend and Love's family filed a civil suit in April. That lawsuit alleges that Huguely's negligence led to Love's death and seeks more than $30 million in damages.
In a motion filed Thursday, his attorneys say it "will not be possible to conveniently find jurors from the City of Charlottesville who will render a fair and impartial trial."
Huguely's attorneys also filed another motion arguing that the Love family's suit has "no facts" to support its allegations.
The Loves have also sued U.Va. and athletics officials, alleging that they contributed to Yeardley Love's death by failing to stop Huguely's excessive drinking.
