LOS ANGELES (AP) - A federal judge and his wife have sued the driver in a hit-and-run crash that killed their 23-year-old son in Pacific Palisades two years ago.

City News Service reported Tuesday that the wrongful death suit filed by Dean and Sharon Pregerson, the parents of David M. Pregerson, seeks unspecified damages.

The suit names 67-year-old Marguerite Dao Vuong, who has pleaded no contest to leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. Also named is her 67-year-old husband, Michael Vuong, who has pleaded no contest to being an accessory. Prosecutors say he tried to help his wife avoid prosecution by identifying himself as the person driving the car. They are scheduled to be sentenced March 6.

David Pregerson, a budding filmmaker and recent UCLA graduate, died days after the Dec. 27, 2013 collision.
