COLLIERVILLE, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A federal judge dismissed Collierville from a lawsuit filed by the former wife of slain basketball star Lorenzen Wright.

Sherra Robinson Wright filed suit alleging that Collierville police failed to properly investigate her ex-husband's disappearance and that Germantown dispatchers mishandled a 911 call it received from Wright's cellphone the night he was killed.

Judge samuel Mays gave Sherra Wright two weeks to say why Germantown should not be dismissed as well.

Former NBA star Lorenzen Wright was found shot to death in July 2010.

No arrests have been made.
