A federal judge dismissed most civil counts against former President Donald Trump and two others related to the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick during the Jan. 6 riots.

The dismissed counts include wrongful death and negligence per se allegations.

However, the lawsuit against the defendants under D.C.’s Survival Act and the conspiracy to violate civil rights claim will proceed. (Trending: Transgender Actor ‘Purposefully Misgendered’ By Airline Employee)

The attorney representing Sicknick’s girlfriend stated that they are considering their next steps, including deposing Trump.

“We are pleased to see that our lawsuit in pursuit of justice for the late Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who died in the aftermath of the January 6th insurrection, has been permitted to continue,” attorney Mark Zaid said.

“We are now considering our next step options, to include deposing former President Trump.”

The medical examiner’s office found that Sicknick died of “natural causes” from a series of strokes, and Trump is facing other legal challenges related to the Capitol riot.
