A local judge dismissed Elizabeth Ohlemacher's lawsuit seeking $5 million from an ambulance worker who treated her after her suicide attempt.

Ohlemacher, 34, was sentenced to nine years in prison Monday on charges stemming from kidnapping a baby and drugging his mother. She had filed a civil lawsuit against Eric Pearson, who works for the Perkins Township Fire Department. Her lawsuit stemmed from her March 2006 suicide attempt at Erie County Jail.

In her lawsuit, Ohlemacher alleged that Pearson, a member of the ambulance crew dispatched to the jail, called one of her ex-husbands and told him of the suicide attempt. The ex-husband then allegedly called another ex-husband, and one of Ohlemacher's children learned what happened and became upset.

Common Pleas Judge Tygh Tone dismissed the lawsuit. His order said Ohlemacher's complaint "fails to state a claim for which relief can be granted."
