MIAMI (AP) - A couple has filed a lawsuit against a South Florida restaurant where a deck collapsed into Biscayne Bay last week during the fourth game of the NBA finals.
A 14-page complaint claims Shuckers Bar & Grill in North Bay Village had a duty to properly maintain its property. The complaint - the first of what will likely be several - was filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court this week by Reynaldo Reyes and Flavia Guisella Ellemberger.
Officials say about 100 people - many watching the Miami Heat play the San Antonio Spurs - were on Shuckers' wooden deck last Thursday night when it suddenly gave way. Two dozen people sustained injuries, two of which were serious.
Injury attorney Spencer Aronfeld told The Miami Herald (http://goo.gl/b1LqP ) that Reyes and Ellemberger were on the deck at the time.
