Mediation in McCluskey case not successful
A mediation session between the University of Utah and the family of a murdered student has failed to produce an agreement on a possible settlement.
The attorneys for Matt and Jill McCluskey announced yesterday that mediation talks with the university were not successful.
The McCluskeys filed a federal lawsuit against the university following the death of their daughter Lauren, who was killed on campus by her ex-boyfriend in 2018.
McCluskey's' parents say the university ignored their daughter's repeated requests for help and protection before her death.
Their attorneys say they will now file a second lawsuit against the university in state court seeking 56-million-dollars in damages.
