Schuerhoff v. Schrader, et. al. - Washington (1996)
In January, 1996, 17-year-old Michael Scheurhoff was pushed to his death from an abandoned railroad trestle in Bothell, Washington.
Bill Marler filed a wrongful death suit against Schrader, Edinger, Drake, Garza and Weaton, and their parents, for the death of Michael Schuerhoff, on behalf of the Scheurhoff family. The suit contended that the five boys pushed Michael to his death from the abandoned trestle, and then failed to rescue him, allowing him to drown in the Sammamish River in Bothell.
