Mother Gets Justice For Lost Clay County Teen

Last updated on Friday, December 14, 2007

(BRAZIL) - A decision has been reached in a wrongful death lawsuit involving a Clay County teenager who died during basketball practice.

13-year-old Kodi Pipes collapsed during basketball practice in 2003.

Pipes mother sued the Clay County School Corporation and the coach for wrongful death.

The family claims he shouldn't have been practicing, because two days prior to his death he blacked out, and he needed clearance to play again.

A verdict was read in favor of Kodi Thursday.
