Judge set to rule on city’s effort to end teen death lawsuit

Hearing delayed for judge accused of misconduct

CINCINNATI (AP) – A judge in Ohio is ready to rule on an effort by Cincinnati and several employees to get a lawsuit thrown out that alleges negligence in the death of a 16-year-old student.

The family of Kyle Plush is suing over his 2018 death.

The teen died after making two 911 calls pleading for help after becoming trapped by a foldaway seat in a vehicle parked near his school.

The city contends the employees are protected by governmental immunity and the lawsuit lacks merit.

Attorneys for the Plush family says the defendants’ conduct was reckless.
