The collapse of the Dallas Cowboys indoor practice facility is the basis for the complaint filed recently by two seriously injured employees. Filed in Texas state court, the suit alleges gross negligence and seeks unspecified damages.
The building fell during a May 2, 2009, wind storm, paralyzing Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm from the waist down. Special teams coach Joe DeCamillis sustained a broken vertebrae. Defendants include the structure’s designer and companies who built and repaired the facility.
