Judge dismisses Jersey City man's lawsuit charging Hudson dispatch bungleA judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought against the city by the father of three children who were brutally stabbed- two of them fatally- allegedly by Dwayne Wilson in their Jersey City home in 2005. The suit charged the city bungled 911 calls concerning the incident, officials said.

The father of the children, D'Artagnan Manzano, sued the city, Police Officers Jose M. Santana and Ernest Vidal, 911 operator Laura Jean Petersen and radio dispatcher Michael E. Clark.

Judge Frances Antonin dismissed the case on April 15, writing that the plaintiff failed to show evidence "of willful or wanton disregard for plaintiff's safety" on the part of 911 call takers and police dispatchers that would have superseded their right to immunity.
