Lawyer threatens lawsuit after Kansas student death report

November 14, 2019 - 8:29 pm

Attorneys for the family of a football player who died of heatstroke after conditioning practice at a Kansas community college says they plan to sue the school, unless it wants to discuss a settlement.

Kansas attorney Chris Dove spoke Thursday after the college released a scathing independent report on Garden City Community College’s conduct the day Braeden Bradforth, 19, died. Dove calls it a damning investigation.

He says it would be in the best interests of the teen’s mother’s mental and psychological state to not drag it out much longer.

Bradforth, a 315 lbs. defensive lineman, was found unconscious outside his dormitory after practice on Aug. 1, 2018. The New Jersey native died that night at a hospital.

The mother’s attorney in New Jersey, Jill Greene, says the report is their ammunition.
