The family of a 16-year-old boy who was restrained at a shuttered western Michigan youth center and died two days later of cardiac arrest has settled a second wrongful death lawsuit in the case.

The settlement between the family of Cornelius Fredrick and Lakeside Academy in Kalamazoo was approved December 29 by a Kalamazoo County judge.

It was reached out of court and filed under seal, so no details are available.

Another lawsuit was settled December 2 in federal court for the Western District of Michigan.

Frederick died after he was restrained for 10 minutes at the center on April 29, 2020.
