52c87d06-80f1-4742-856c-751686bf22aaAugust Busch IV has agreed to pay $1.5 million to settle a wrongful-death lawsuit over the accidental drug overdose death of his girlfriend, Adrienne Martin, at his mansion, according to court records.

The proposed settlement, which is subject to judicial review next month, is a negotiated agreement between attorneys for Busch and Dr. Kevin Martin, the ex-husband of Adrienne Martin and father of her 8-year-old son.Christine Trampler, Adrienne Martin’s mother, has told the Post-Dispatch previously that she intends to seek custody of Blake Martin, although she has yet to take legal action. Judge William Syler will decide if the settlement is in the best interest of the child. If he approves it, the judge could allocate a portion of the proceeds to Adrienne Martin’s parents.

A Cape Girardeau County judge rejected their attempt this year, but ruled that they could still argue for a portion of the money.
“Our clients have been barred from asserting their rights,” Andrew Leroy, a lawyer representing Trampler, argued before a panel of three judges of the Missouri Court of Appeals.

“We know that they would like to join the fray. We know that there are some benefits to them to join the fray,” Graham said. “They can drag this thing out. They can create some pressure. They can get a lot of notoriety, and they could probably squeeze, if they want, some more money out of us.”

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.

Kevin J. Martin, 45, an osteopathic physician said that it was Busch who told him Adrienne was taking the Trazodone, and that he “was surprised” because he discovered she had a heart condition — Long QT syndrome — in a test he administered in 2002. The syndrome can potentially cause fast, chaotic heartbeats. Trazodone is a prescription drug used to treat depression but also sometimes used to treat insomnia, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Kevin Martin said when someone has a heart condition, “you can’t take Trazodone.” A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine is licensed to prescribe and perform all diagnostic tests and is trained in manual medicine to treat all parts of the body from head to toe. Osteopathic physicians are permitted to prescribe controlled substances. Busch filed for divorce from his wife of two years, Kathryn Thatcher, on November 26, 2008 following the merger of Anheuser Busch and InBev on November 18. Busch, 44, was named president and CEO of Anheuser Busch in December of 2006. Fortune suggested that marriage to the Boston College graduate may have been a condition of Busch’s appointment to the position while his father, chairman August Busch III, and the board of directors controlled the company.
