MINNEAPOLIS — The wrongful death lawsuit against former Minnesota Vikings tight end Joe Senser and his wife Amy has resumed after a four-month break.

An attorney for the family of hit-and-run victim Anousone Phanthavong met with the Sensers and their attorney Friday to talk about evidence-gathering issues.

Judge Bruce Peterson placed the civil case on hold in October. He ordered that neither side gather evidence while a criminal investigation continued.

Amy Senser is scheduled to stand trial April 23 on two counts of criminal vehicle homicide. She is charged with striking Phanthavong on an I-94 ramp and leaving the scene last August.
