State Supreme Court To Hear Draughon Case

Posted December 9, 2003

— The state Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday in what could be a landmark case pitting a dead student's family against a school.

In August 1998, 17-year old Max Draughon collapsed during football practice at Triton High. He later died.

His family filed a wrongful death suit against four school system employees, which was thrown out by the appeals court.

The state Supreme Court will decide if that lawsuit should be reinstated.
