Nine years after the death of Cameron Redus, his family settled their lawsuit against University of the Incarnate Word. I previously wrote about that lawsuit here and here. UIW embarked upon a creative defense in which it argued that its police force was an arm of the state government, and therefore, immune from suit. It was a dubious defense. UIW is a private university and always has ben. Yet, that defense had enough legs to drag the suit out for years while the appeals were considered. The suit was filed in 2014.
Trial had been set for Sept. 19, 2022. That trial setting likely led to more serious sorts of negotiations. See San Antonio Express News report for more information.
