[April 20 2011 August Busch IV has agreed to pay $1.5 million to settle]

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.

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.

Wrongful Death Action on behalf of Blake

Wrongful Death Action on behalf of Blake

Adrienne Martin, 27, was found dead at the home of August Busch IV just before Christmas. Now Kevin Martin, her ex-husband has filed a wrongful death lawsuit for unspecified damages on behalf of their eight-year-old son, Blake. He claims his actions ‘contributed or caused Blake Alexander Martin [his son] to suffer loss of comfort and companionship’ through the death of his mother. The lawsuit does not explain what those actions were. But Blake’s grandmother, Christine Trampler, is worried about this lawsuit and is now taking legal action of her own. She has concerns that Blake’s best interests might not be represented. Trampler says she’ll be asking for a Guardian ad Litem to be appointed during this lawsuit and she’ll be seeking custody of Blake.
She questions Kevin’s fitness as Blake’s parent and that she wants the court to explore the close relationship between Kevin and Mr. Busch. Trampler has hired high-profile New York attorney John Q. Kelly, who represented Nicole Brown Simpson and the parents of Natalie Holloway.

Busch relative busted at Godfrey beer bash
March 26, 2008 2:34 PM

GODFREY – Adolphus August Busch V, 17, was arrested and charged with unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor. He allegedly admitted drinking three beers. A Madison County sheriff’s deputy said those arrested were drinking Natural Light, an Anheuser-Busch product, and rum.

Busch V listed the same address in O’Fallon as Adolphus Busch IV, a member of the same family that founded the Anheuser-Busch brewery.

“Neither this individual nor his parents are employees of Anheuser-Busch,” brewery spokeswoman Francine I. Katz said in a prepared statement Wednesday. “This company therefore has no involvement in this matter.”

Busch V posted $100 bond Wednesday and was released, authorities said.

Eight other young people also were arrested at a residence in Godfrey. Authorities said they are connected to the men’s soccer team at Lewis and Clark Community College.

The teenagers were arrested at an apartment in the 1200 block of Surrey Court in Godfrey, the home of Andrew R. Herr, 18.

Herr answered the door and allowed deputies inside. The deputies were responding to a complaint of a noise disturbance.

“While speaking with Herr, the deputies observed eight additional subjects inside the apartment, along with an abundance of open beer cans,” a news release from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department said.

The young people arrested and charged arrested allegedly admitted to having consumed beer, and some submitted to blood-alcohol tests that confirmed they had been drinking. Herr showed a blood-alcohol level of 0.10 percent and allegedly admitted drinking five or six beers. A blood-alcohol content of 0.08 percent constitutes a legal presumption of intoxication in Illinois.

All of the suspects were taken to the Madison County Jail in Edwardsville, except for one female juvenile, who was turned over to the custody of her mother.

Also arrested and charged were Kimberly Ann Kahre, 18, of St. Charles; Courtney Rose Holt, 17, of St. Charles;

As InBev (slowly) puts the wheels in motion to remove Anheuser-Busch’s (BUD) board, a new character in the drama is emerged: Adolphus Busch IV. Adolphus, BUD’s founder’s great grandson, is not to be confused with his nephew, Augustus Busch IV, the founder’s great great grandson.

Adolphus is on InBev’s slate of directors since BUD was sold to InBev . So who is this modern-day Benedict Arnold / shareholder hero, anyway? Here are some fun facts :

* Adolphus Busch IV has been a vocal proponent of the buyout from the start.

* Adolphus thinks an InBev buyout could be “a blessing for everybody.”

* Adolphus hasn’t spent much time directly involved in the company, but still has made a career working with beer makers.

* Adolphus gave the maximum allowed contribution to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton during the Presidential primary

911 call

FRONTENAC, Mo. Police have released the 911 call that led them to find the body of Adrienne N. Martin, a 27-year-old aspiring model, in the upscale suburban St. Louis home of ex-Anheuser-Busch CEO August Busch IV.

Police were called on Dec. 19 by Michael Jung, a Busch family employee. Here’s a transcript of the call:

Operator: Emergency 9-1-1

Michael Jung: We need an ambulance at 2032 South Lindbergh.

O: Is that a residence or business?

MJ: Residence

O: Okay, what’s the problem?

MJ: This girl’s just not waking up.

O: Is she breathing?

MJ: We don’t know. It’s dark back there. I’m gonna get a light and try and see.

O: Okay, I’ll get them going right away.

Frontenac Police Chief Thomas Becker says the investigation continues, by his department and the county medical examiner’s office. The medical examiner says autopsy results are inconclusive. Police also confirm that August Busch IV, who’d been dating Martin, was in the home at the time.

Art Margulis, an attorney for Busch, said Martin was a friend of Busch who was visiting the home and there was “absolutely nothing suspicious” about her death.
