GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. (AP) - Four young women who alleged former Major League Baseball player Chad Curtis inappropriately touched them have settled their federal lawsuit against a school district in western Michigan for $575,000.
The settlement with the Lakewood Public Schools and its board of education was announced last week.
The women allege Curtis inappropriately touched them when they attended Lakewood High in Barry County. He was a volunteer coach in the weight room. Curtis was convicted of criminal sexual conduct in 2013 and is in prison.
The settlement doesn't include claims against the 48-year-old Curtis. He is representing himself in the civil lawsuit.
Curtis played for six teams, including the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees.
