Iowa Settles Suit Over Death At Glenwood Care Center

A state panel has agreed to pay $100,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the estate of a 26-year-old man who died following a seizure and lax medical care at a home for disabled Iowans.

The State Appeals Board approved the settlement with the estate of Timothy N. Alexander last week. The lawsuit claimed that poor supervision at the Glenwood Resource Center in southwest Iowa contributed to his 2008 death.

The state-run home has already been fined $11,500 for errors related to its care for Alexander.

A spokesman for the Iowa Attorney General's Office says Alexander's estate is expected to sign the agreement Thursday, although that step is considered a formality because a judge has already approved the settlement.
