New Developments in Thomas Mallory Civil Lawsuit

New developments in the Thomas Mallory civil lawsuit. This Saturday marks one year after 16-year-old Mallory, a former Coronado High student, took a hit of ecstasy, overdosed, and later died at University Medical Center. NewsChannel 11's Jennifer Vogel has been tracking down the progress in this case and has the new information. 

Just weeks before Thomas Mallory's parents, John and Louise Steinspring, were supposed to go to trial against several prominent Lubbock families, we have learned there will be no trial. Sources have told us several families have decided to settle out of court.

You'll recall, EMS responded to an overdose call from the Lakeridge Country Club last June 10th. Mallory, was with several other teens, who reportedly gave him a shower, food and fluids but nothing helped. A few hours passed before the teens moved Mallory to the golf course and called 911. He died two days later.

For the next few months, an investigation surrounded the other teens that were with Mallory that night. The Grand Jury did not indict anyone in the case. But Mallory's parents filed a civil lawsuit against eight teens and one Lubbock doctor. They believe if the teens had called 911 earlier, Thomas might still be alive.

Paperwork with the details about the outcome in the civil lawsuit is expected to be filed in the courts as soon as next week. We'll keep you updated.
