Stringer Is Pursuing Viking Suit

May 20, 2003|From Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Korey Stringer's widow will ask an appeals court to reinstate her $100-million lawsuit against the Minnesota Vikings now that she has settled with the last defendants.

Kelci Stringer reached a deal with the Vikings' training camp physician, David Knowles, and his Mankato Clinic for an undisclosed sum, Hennepin County District Judge Gary Larson said Monday.

Last month, Larson dismissed all of Stringer's claims against the Vikings and team officials. But the judge allowed her $100-million wrongful-death lawsuit to go forward against Knowles, who was not a Viking employee.

Stringer contended her husband, a 335-pound Pro Bowl lineman, did not receive proper medical care when he collapsed during training camp July 31, 2001. He died of heatstroke the next morning.
