Firefighter's Family Sue Bar

The family of a firefighter who died in a bar fight is suing the bar where the incident occurred in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania. Volunteer firefighter Ray Stringer, 43, was killed after suffering severe brain injuries from his fight with George T. Lightcap IV, 30, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars club. The lawsuit accuses the club of negligence in serving alcohol to Stringer when he was already visibly intoxicated and showing signs of violence. Lightcap is serving a 5 1/2- to 20-year prison sentence for aggravated assault and involuntary manslaughter.
