Adrienne Martin’s parents — mother Christine Trampler of Ozark, Mo., and estranged father George “Larry” Eby — had sought to join their grandson as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which would have given them greater control over legal strategy and approval of any settlement.

Cape Girardeau Circuit Judge William Syler rejected their attempt last month. Now, the two parents are seeking an appeal.
The judicial approval of a $1.5 million wrongful-death lawsuit settlement offered by ex-beer baron August Busch IV to the young son of his deceased girlfriend was postponed indefinitely while the girlfriend’s parents appeal to join the lawsuit.

The proposed settlement was to benefit Blake Martin, 8, the son of Adrienne Martin, who was found dead of a drug overdose Dec. 19 at Busch’s mansion in Huntleigh.

The suit was filed on the boy’s behalf by his father, Adrienne Martin’s ex-husband, Dr. Kevin Martin of Cape Girardeau.

Busch’s attorneys have said their client intended for the settlement to go entirely to Blake Martin. Adrienne Martin’s parents, however, can make a claim for a portion of the $1.5 million if their appeal is denied.

Syler was set to consider the settlement later this month, but that was canceled last week to give a higher court time to review. No future settlement hearing is scheduled. A routine status conference is scheduled for Aug. 8.
