The family of a man who plummeted to his death from fire-escape stairs at Sports Authority Field at Mile High after a Denver Broncos game has sued the stadium district and other entities including Bowlen Sports Inc.

The wrongful death civil lawsuit was filed in Denver District Court on Tuesday, the one-year anniversary of 36-year-old Jason Coy's death, on behalf of his widow, Leslie, and her five children by Windsor attorney James Bramer.

The fire escape does not have uniform railings and steps, the lawsuit says, and presented an "unreasonable risk of injury to patrons."

The lawsuit was filed against the Metropolitan Football Stadium District, Stadium Management Company and a half dozen other defendants. It seeks compensation for Coy’s lost wages and the pain and suffering of his family.
