CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A Massachusetts judge has dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit against Harvard University by the mother of a nonstudent killed in a 2009 drug robbery in a dorm.

Denise Cosby says Harvard should have stopped Jabrai Jordan Copney from living with his then-girlfriend in a dorm and using her security card. The judge says Harvard couldn't be expected to protect Justin Cosby.

Copney is serving a life sentence for the killing.

Cosby's attorney declined to comment. A spokesman says Harvard would "let the decision speak for itself."
