Judge: Parents owe $300k for suit in son's gym mat death

The parents of a Georgia teenager found dead inside a rolled-up gym mat and their attorney must pay more than $292,000 in legal fees to dozens of people they accused of foul play in a lawsuit that was later dropped, a judge ruled.

The body of Kendrick Johnson, 17, of Valdosta, Georgia was found in the gymnasium by classmates at Lowndes High School in 2013.

Sheriff's investigators concluded Johnson died in a freak accident, stuck upside down and unable to breathe while trying to retrieve a shoe that fell inside the upright mat.
