CPS Settles Trampoline Lawsuit For $14.7 Million

A Chicago man injured on a mini-trampoline while he was an 8th grade student at a South Side elementary school 17 years ago has settled a lawsuit with the Chicago Board of Education and a private youth center for almost $14.7 million, his attorneys said today.

Ryan Murray, who was 13 at the time, was injured in a tumbling class on Dec. 14, 1992, at what was then Bryn Mawr Elementary School, 7455 S. Jeffery Boulevard, according to his attorneys.
