UC Settles Ted Agu Wrongful Death Lawsuit for $4.75 Million

courtroomFollowing 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.
