VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A hearing scheduled for Monday in Valdosta to determine attorney fees in the Kendrick Johnson lawsuit case has been canceled.

The parents of Johnson, a student at Lowndes High School found dead in a rolled up school gym mat, will have to pay attorney's fees for multiple people they sued.

Thursday Judge Richard Porter said the details will be discussed at a hearing Monday, but the hearing was canceled. It is not yet known if it will be rescheduled.

In March Kenneth and Jacqueline Johnson dropped a $100,000,000 dollar lawsuit against the Lowndes County School System and Sheriff's Office.

Their son, Kendrick was found dead at Lowndes High School three and a half years ago. His parents suspect foul play, but authorities ruled his death an accident.

Thursday, Attorney James L. Elliott filed a motion with the Lowndes County Superior Court referencing the decision for the Lowndes Co. Sheriff's Office defendants. 

They are: Sheriff Chris Prine, and Michael Adams, Troy Black, Christopher Burke, Wanda Edwards, Howard Fisher, Christi Griffin, Roy Hart, Logan Henderson, Stryde Jones, Randy Lightsey, John Marion, Mark Maskule, Jack Priddy, Aaron Pritchett, Kerry  Quinn, James D. Thornton, Bryce Whitener, and Jack Winningham.
