$8M Settlement Reached In San Ramon Valley High School Drowning Lawsuit

The family of a 15-year old San Ramon Valley High School freshman who drowned in the school’s swimming pool in Danville in May 2018 has agreed to an $8 million settlement of a wrongful death lawsuit against the school district, shortly before the case was supposed to go to trial.

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has agreed to pay the settlement to Thomas and Karen Curry, who had sued the district and physical education teacher Aaron Becker in November 2018, six months after their son Benjamin drowned in the high school pool during a physical education class.

The settlement comes ahead of the scheduled trial in Contra Costa County Superior Court.
