Family of Wal-Mart Employee Trampled to Death by Shoppers on Black Friday Files Wrongful Death Suit

The family of the man, Jimmy Damour, trampled to death by shoppers at the Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, New York, on Black Friday, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the retailer, the mall, the local county, and the police. A coroner's report established that Damour died of asphyxiation (not a heart attack, as originally thought).

Subsequently, a local politician, James Gennaro, has introduced a "Doorbuster Bill", which would require malls and large retailers to take appropriate security measures when promoting major sales. The measures identified in the legislation included employment of security personnel trained in crowd control and holding retailers liable for any injuries to shoppers.
