The family of the Valley Stream Wal-Mart employee trampled to death on "Black Friday" filed a lawsuit Wednesday in New York State Supreme Court in the Bronx, the Associated Press is reporting.
The wrongful-death lawsuit was filed on behalf of Elsie Damour
Phillipe, the sister of victim Jdimytai Damour, a temporary employee
who was trampled to death when an estimated 2,000 customers broke down
doors and stormed into the store in the Green Acres Mall before dawn
Nassau County and the Nassau County Police Department.
It is unclear what monetary damages are being sought.
Phillipe, a Bronx resident, is the court-appointed administrator of her
brother's estate, according to The Associated Press. Damour, 34, lived
in Jamaica, Queens.
