A judge has thrown out the remaining counts of a civil lawsuit filed by a New Jersey couple who say they were scared away from their home after receiving anonymous creepy letters from someone named "The Watcher."
Derek and Maria Broaddus had filed a lawsuit against the former owners of the Westfield home, saying they knew about the "The Watcher" before they sold them the home in 2014.
NJ.com reports a Superior Court judge on Wednesday dismissed the remaining counts of the lawsuit, saying there's no evidence the former owners intentionally hid a letter they had received from "The Watcher."
The judge also dismissed a countersuit that alleged the Broadduses were smearing the former owners' reputation.
The Broadduses say they've received four creepy letters from "The Watcher," the most recent one earlier this year.
