A lawsuit against the federal government filed by Louisiana family members of three of the 20 people killed in a flood at a U.S. Forest Service campground in southwest Arkansas has been dropped.

Federal court records show the suit was dismissed on Feb. 21 at the request of the estate of Kay Roeder, Deborah Roeder and Bruce Roeder.

The family members from Luling, La., died June 11, 2010, when a raging flood on the Little Missouri River swept away tents, RVs and other vehicles in the early morning darkness with no warning at the Albert Pike U.S. Forest Service campground.

The Roeder estate withdrew the suit after the government argued it was immune from being sued.

The judge dismissed the suit without prejudice, meaning the estate can file again.
