State Supreme Court Upholds Ruling In Draughon Case

Posted February 6, 2004

— The state Supreme Court upheld a ruling Friday that would prevent a family from suing a school over the death of their son.

Back in 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.

The appeals court threw out that suit. On Friday, the state's high court allowed that ruling to stand.
