The family of the man who died from an infection caused after a fight outside a San Diego nightclub has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.
Conner Kepple, 21, entered into a fight with nightclub employees after he was kicked out of the club for hitting a bouncer.
He later developed fast-spreading necrotizing fasciitis in an injured leg and died about a week after the fight.
The prosecutors have said they will not file criminal charges.
Following the death of Cal football player Ted Agu during a team drill, the University of California has settled the wrongful death lawsuit filed by his family, for $4.75 million.
Agu, 21, died in winter 2014 after a supervised offseason workout outside Cal’s Memorial Stadium. After his death, his parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that the university put him in such a strenuous workout even when the doctors and coaches knew about his sickle cell trait.
On April 14th, the University of California and Agu’s family reached a settlement, bringing months of negotiations to an end.
