Mediation Set for Lawsuit Against Wayne County School Board
Posted January 22, 2007 12:32 p.m. EST
Antwan Lewis, 16, drowned at Myrtle Beach in April of 2005 after traveling there for a band competition with Spring Creek High School.
Lewis’ parents filed a lawsuit against the school board, saying it was negligent in ensuring their son's safety and should be held responsible. School officials said the field trip was fully chaperoned.
If Monday’s mediation session doesn’t resolve the dispute, a trial date is set for March 12.
