In a new settlement, Christine Trampler, Martin’s mother, will receive $200,000, less attorney’s fees, which includes an appeal and a new filing.
[October 16]Trampler’s ex-husband, Arthur Trampler, was found dead Monday night in an apparent carbon monoxide suicide at home in Springfield, Mo., officials there said. Busch had put him on the suit’s witness list but recently removed his name.

In an out-of-court agreement, Martin’s father, Larry Eby, agreed to accept $200,000 from Busch and is no longer part of the lawsuit.
Attorneys for Resopndent stated:
“It continues to be Mr. Busch’s desire to get this matter over as soon as possible and to get as much of the settlement funds into Blake Martin’s guardianship. Mrs. Trampler’s TV appearance in which she stated all she was seeking was information was surprising. All we have heard from her through her legal counsel is that she only wants money. The grandfather, Larry Eby, as agreed to put all of his settlement funds into a trust for the benefit of Blake Martin. Mr. Busch hopes that Christine Trampler will do the same thing.”

Kevin Martin, D.O., Natural Guardian and Conservator for Blake Martin, Respondent, vs. August A. Busch, IV, Respondent, vs. Larry Eby and Christine Trampler, Appellants.

Respondent August A. Busch, IV’s application for transfer from the Missouri Court of Appeals, No. ED96814, denied. Draper, J., not participating.
an appellate court found that Larry Eby and Christine Trampler had a right to join the case. The state supreme court on April 3 refused Busch’s request for reconsideration of the appellate court ruling.
The ruling gives Trampler and Eby greater control over legal strategy and the decision whether to accept the $1.5 million settlement offer
[February 15, 2912]The Missouri Court of Appeals in the Eastern District released an opinion today declaring that George “Larry” Eby and Christine Trampler — the parents of the late Adrienne Nicole Martin, former girlfriend of St. Louis beer scion August Busch IV — have the right to join in on the wrongful death lawsuit filed earlier this year on behalf of Martin’s young son, Blake.
The three appellate judges, who ruled unanimously, cited Missouri’s Wrongful Death statute, which gives equal power to a decedent’s spouse, children and parents when it comes to recovering damages.

The decision means that Martin’s mother and estranged father could possibly receive a piece of any settlement pie. It also means that Busch, who has kept a low profile since Martin’s death and originally sought to settle the matter quickly, won’t be shedding his legal baggage any time soon.

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

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.
