A judge throws out a lawsuit against a city EMT who refused to help a dying pregnant woman inside a Brooklyn cafe.
The city's Law Department says the judge tossed the lawsuit filed by the family of Eutisha Rennix because Rennix did not personally ask for help while suffering the asthma attack that killed her.
In 2009, Rennix began having the attack while working at this Au Bon Pain in Downtown Brooklyn.
Her co-workers flagged down Melissa Jackson and Jason Green -- two EMTs who were having lunch at the store.
But Jackson just called 911 with her cell phone and left with Green.
Rennix was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
In tossing the lawsuit, the judge called Jackson's lack of response "egregious." But she cited a state law that says gross negligence can only be claimed if the injured person or a family member calls for help.
Criminal charges against Jackson were thrown out last year, but she still faces an internal review for not helping Rennix.
The other EMT was shot to death outside a Manhattan nightclub in 2010.
