A lawsuit filed by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office seeks the closure of a summer camp where a girl died. The 6-year-old girl drowned while attending the summer camp last June, prompting her parents to file suit against the Altadena-based Summerkids Camp. Following the child's death, county officials revealed two anonymous tips from other camp parents citing safety concerns and complaints about the treatment their children received. The camp is being defended by Pasadena Councilman Steve Madison, who works as an attorney and also represents Pasadena residents, including the parents of the girl who died.

The case will now be sent back to a lower court with a higher threshold of proof.
