Stringer Suit With Doctor Settled

The long legal battle between the family of Korey Stringer and those involved in his medical care on the day of his death may finally be over.

The Vikings have spent almost two years embroiled in legal battles with the family of the late Korey Stringer, but, after a settlement Monday, the case may be as close to being over as it can be.

On Monday, it was announced that the Stringer family reached a settlement with Dr. David Knowles and the Mankato Clinic. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Knowles and the clinic were the only remaining defendants from the original wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family. This doesn't necessarily mean that the case is completely over.

VU has been told the family intends to appeal the verdict of Judge Gary Larson to the state Court of Appeals in hopes of having the charges leveled against the team re-sinstated.

* In a tragic follow-up to a story reported yesterday, the 14-year old shot and killed at the home of former Vikings assistant coach Ray Sherman was his son, Ray Jr. The shooting has been ruled a suicide. All of us at VU send our heartfelt condolences to Sherman and his family.
* Jason Sehorn signed a one-year deal with the Rams Monday and, as expected, it was announced he would be moved to safety as part of the deal.
