The Mississippi Supreme Court has ruled against the family of a Mount Olive High School football player who collapsed during practice and died in 2007.
Court records show 17-year-old Lonnie Magee died of a heat stroke.
The family sued the Covington County School District in 2008, alleging the school system was negligent in supervising the football program.
A trial judge dismissed part of the lawsuit but ruled there was a question of whether the school district had provided a safe environment for the players.
The Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, ruled the lawsuit should have been dismissed in its entirety.
