Parents Awarded $15M After Boy Dies During P.E. Class

The Los Angeles Unified School District was found liable Friday for the 2016 death of a 13-year-old boy who collapsed during a PE class at Palms Middle School and was not treated with a defibrillator by school staff, court documents show.

The jury unanimously awarded the boy’s family $15 million.

The verdict stems from a lawsuit filed against the district in Los Angeles County Superior Court in July 2017. The case went to trial last week.

The family is “gratified that the jury rendered a verdict in their favor” but “have been devastated by the loss of their son,” attorney Gary Casselman said in an interview with The Times.
