One of two men hurt in an attack in Charlottesville is seeking more than half a million dollars in a civil lawsuit.
Michael Brown Jr. was stabbed outside Buffalo Wild Wings in March and now he wants the restaurant, the property owner, and his attacker to pay up. Brown is seeking a total of $850,000 after he and his cousin were stabbed.
He wants $500,000 from Belle Enterprises - the owner of Buffalo Wild Wings - and Federal Realty Investment Trust for negligence. Court documents allege there was not enough lighting or security at the restaurant the night of the attack, which happened in the parking lot. Brown says he and three friends were going to their vehicle, when they were attacked by a group of about 15 to 20 people.
Antwan Chambers, 22, pleaded guilty last month to attempted malicious wounding and other charges for the stabbing and is set to be sentenced in February. Now Brown wants Chambers to pay him $350,000 in damages.
Brown says he suffered physical and emotional damage. He is requesting a jury trial in this case.
