L.A. Unified has reached a $9.5-million settlement with the parents of a 12-year-old boy who died after running laps at Dodson Middle School in Rancho Palos Verdes, the attorneys representing the family said Wednesday.
The boy’s parents filed a civil lawsuit against the school district on March 29, 2019, contending that employees neglected to follow procedures that may have saved their son’s life.
The parties reached the agreement before trial a few months ago, said Bruce Broillet, an attorney representing the family.
“Los Angeles Unified takes the health and safety of our students very seriously,” an LAUSD spokesperson said. “We are unable to comment on ongoing or pending litigation.”
