LAS VEGAS (AP) -A strip club manager paralyzed in a triple shooting is suing the National Football League, the Tennessee Titans and suspended football player Adam ``Pacman'' Jones, claiming they're responsible for his injuries.
Tommy Urbanski seeks unspecified damages in the civil lawsuit, which his lawyer, Matthew Dushoff, said would be filed Friday in Clark County District Court. It also names the owners of Harlem Knights, a Houston strip club that rented the Minxx Gentleman's Club in Las Vegas in February for a party the weekend of the NBA All-Star game.
``The fact that the NFL and the Titans did not punish Adam 'Pacman' Jones until after Tommy was paralyzed is a proximate cause of Tommy's injuries,'' Dushoff said before a news conference at a Henderson hotel with Urbanski and his wife, Kathleen.
Jones' attorney, Robert Langford, denied the troubled cornerback had any responsibility for the man's injuries, and called seeking damages from the player, the NFL and the Titans ``a 'Hail Mary' pass.''
``There's no basis in fact for suing the NFL and the Titans,'' Langford said.
Jones faces two felony charges alleging he incited a melee and threatened to kill people inside the club minutes before the shooting outside. No one has been charged in the shooting.
Jones was suspended for the 2007 season in April for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
