Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit for Fatally Beaten Teen
March 24, 2015
A family filed a wrongful death lawsuit on the anniversary of a high school basketball player's death in Texas.
The family of Troy Causey filed the lawsuit against the Dallas Independent School District and the Dallas County Juvenile Department for allegedly putting Causey in a dangerous situation when he was recruited to play basketball and live in a district away from his family.
Causey died March 24, 2014 from injuries he suffered from being beaten during his eight-month stay at the juvenile department.
Jonathan Turner, who had been living in the same house, was charged with manslaughter after admitting to hitting Causey, who hit his head when he fell and lost consciousness.
