DALLAS (AP) - Records show that the parents of the Prairie View
A&M University student who died in a hazing incident last year have
settled their wrongful death lawsuit against their son's

A final judgment signed by State District Judge Bob Wortham in
Beaumont on Sept. 1 says the case has been resolved and that Donnie
and Katrina Wade should take nothing from Washington, D.C.-based
Phi Beta Sigma. Such language is often used when the parties in a
lawsuit settle out of court.

Donnie Wade II collapsed and died after participating in a
punishing set of pre-dawn physical activities last October. An
autopsy later determined that the 20-year-old student from Dallas
suffered from a series of medical conditions that were aggravated
by the exercises.
