Jury selected in wrongful death lawsuit


Menomonie (WQOW) - A trial begins in connection with the death of a UW-Stout student.

Brad Simon died of head injuries after falling off his bicycle two years ago in Menomonie.

His parents are suing two others who were UW-Stout students at the time.  The wrongful death lawsuit alleges that Jared Britton and Jed McGlasson were involved in an altercation with Simon at a Menomonie bar.  His parents allege the two men chased Simon and pushed his bike, causing him to crash.  A jury later acquitted Britton of murder charges.  Prosecutors then dismissed the murder charges against McGlasson.

A jury was selected on Monday to hear the lawsuit.  The trial is expected to last all week.
