TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Shawnee County judge says he plans to issue a decision next week in a lawsuit involving the death of two Topeka men who drowned when their canoe capsized in the Kansas River in 2007.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/TfjVJ8) reports District Judge Larry Hendrix said Tuesday he plans issue a memorandum decision in the lawsuit by Jim Bryant against the city of Topeka and state of Kansas.

Bryant is the father of 25-year-old Joshua Bryant, who along with 30-year-old Richard Heyroth drowned late Aug. 5, 2007, after their canoe capsized after going over a spillway in Topeka. Two other men on the float trip also fell into the water, but survived.

Bryant claims authorities failed to adequately warn boaters of the approaching danger posed by a low-water weir.
