Former NBA star Marcus Camby has settled the wrongful death lawsuit accusing him of being partly to blame for his 9-year-old nephew drowning at his Texas mansion.
The Blast previously reported, Marcus McGhee sued Camby over the death of his son (also named Marcus McGhee) after the boy drowned on Camby’s property over Thanksgiving in 2016.
The ex-NBA star responded to the lawsuit by claiming he was in no way responsible for his nephew’s death. He argued that he had no legal responsibility for the incident under Texas law and says it was “a terrible, tragic and unnecessary death of a young boy … who was part of Camby’s own family.”
McGhee accused Camby and the family of taking over two hours to call the police after realizing young Marcus was missing and McGhee claimed that once police “did arrive, they detected illegal drug use on the property, and Camby was reluctant to let police inspect certain areas of his house.”
Recently, docs were filed in the case revealing Camby and McGhee reached a settlement and per their agreement, all claims against Camby will be dismissed and the case closed.
