KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — The family of the 16-year-old who died at a Kalamazoo youth home has settled a second wrongful death lawsuit.
A Kalamazoo County judge approved the settlement on Dec. 29. The settlement agreement was reached out of court and is sealed, so details are unknown.
A second lawsuit against Sequel Youth and Family Services, which ran the facility, was settled in December in federal court.
Two men who were directly involved in the restraint face charges of second-degree child abuse and involuntary manslaughter. Their trials are set to start in March.
