Civil Case in Death of Lubbock Teen Expected to Be Dismissed

A Lubbock family is observing the one year anniversary of their son's drug-related death knowing no criminal or civil action will likely ever take place. 

On the night of June 10,2005, 16-year-old Thomas Mallory took a hit of ecstasy. His friends noticed something was wrong and gave him a shower and food. Four hours later they called 9-1-1. But it was too late. He died two days later at a Lubbock hospital. A Lubbock Grand Jury heard evidence in the case, but declined to indict anyone. Mallory's parents then filed suit against a prominent Lubbock doctor and several of Mallory's friends, including the former mayor's son.

Now it appears that a lawsuit has been settled without any payout to the family. NewsChannel 11 first broke the story Thursday and we expect a motion to dismiss the case to be filed in the coming days.

We'll bring you that report as soon as it happens.
