FORT MYERS, Fla.- The mother of an FGCU student has filed a lawsuit suing the university where her son died.
Attorney Marc Ginsberg of Hialeah is representing the student's mother, Claudine Brown.
Claudine Brown's son, Joel Johnson, died on FGCU's campus at a lake in June of 2011. The drowning happened during the early morning hours (1am) outside of the recommended swimming hours. The lawsuit was filed this past November saying the school should have monitored the lake more closely.
