Dunn’s parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, challenged British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and his office in court over its determination that Sacoolas had diplomatic immunity. They also alleged that the U.K government wrongly impeded a police investigation.

Their challenge was rejected Tuesday after two judges ruled that the American had diplomatic immunity “on arrival in the U.K.” under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and that she “enjoyed immunity from U.K. criminal jurisdiction at the time of Harry’s death.”

Following the ruling, the attorney’s office representing Sacoolas told Fox News in an emailed statement that they are still open to working with authorities.

“We have been and remain willing to discuss a resolution with the U.K. 당국,” the statement said. “Anne would like nothing more than to find a path forward and to provide the family some measure of peace.”
