Family Of Girl Who Died At LA Rave Settle Suit For $190K

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The family of a 15-year-old girl who died of an ecstasy overdose at a rave at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will receive a $190,000 lawsuit settlement.

Sasha Rodriguez collapsed at the Electric Daisy Carnival in 2010 and later died at a hospital. Her family sued the event’s organizer, Insomniac Inc., and the coliseum for damages for personal injury and wrongful death.

The Los Angeles Times reports Saturday that Insomniac Inc., agreed to pay $175,000 while refusing to admit any wrongdoing or liability.

An insurer for the coliseum’s manager, Todd DeStefano, will pay an additional $15,000.

The Coliseum commission briefly imposed a moratorium on rave events at the venue following Rodriguez’s death.
