No acknowledgement of liability in death of Kentucky high school football player

The wrongful death lawsuit for 15-year-old Max Gilpin has been settled for $1.75 million. Gilpin collapsed at Pleasure Ridge High School in August of 2008 and died three days later.

After Max’s death, his parents sued head coach Jason Stinson and five of his assistants for negligence.

The settlement, which has been confirmed to the Courier-Journal by attorneys from both sides, states that there is no acknowledgment of liability by the defendants.
