Lawsuit Over Kentucky High School Football Player’s Death Settled

September 20, 2010

A lawsuit over the death of a 15-year-old football player in Louisville, Kentucky has been settled for $1.75 million.

Insurers for the Jefferson County Public Schools and its employees agreed to pay the sum to the parents of Max Gilpin, who collapsed at Pleasure Ridge Park High School in August 2008 and died three days later.

His parents sued head coach Jason Stinson and five of his assistants after their son’s death.

Lawyers for both sides confirmed the settlement to The Courier-Journal and said it contained no acknowledgment of liability by the defendants.
