BOSTON — A federal judge has ruled that the family of one of James "Whitey" Bulger's alleged victims can continue with a federal lawsuit against FBI agents who monitored the mobster while he was an informant.

U.S. District Judge William Young said in a ruling issued Thursday that a lawsuit by Michael Donahue's family against agents can continue despite of an appeals court ruling that dismissed a claim against the federal government because the statute of limitations had expired.

His family says Donahue was an innocent victim who was giving a ride home to Bulger's target.
