The familyof a Dallas Cowboys practice squad player, killed in a drunk-driving crash issuing the nightclub that served him and the car's driver.
Jerry Brown's family filed suit last week in a Dallas County Court against Beamers Private Club of Dallas.
The suit alleges the club served "large sums of alcohol" to Josh Brent, the former Cowboys player who also played for Bloomington Central Catholic.
Police say Brent was driving with a blood-alcohol level at twice the legal limit.
Brent faces a January trial on intoxication, manslaughter, and manslaughter charges.
He retired before the current football season.
