One year after the death of Brian Christopher Lawler, Jerry Lawler has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Hardeman County, Tennessee.
The lawsuit was announced in a press release that was issued by Rosenblum & Reisman, Attorneys at Law:
"Jerry Lawler filed a lawsuit on Friday, July 26, 2019 seeking justice for Brian Lawler's family. Lawler is seeking compensatory damages and punitive damages in an amount to be determined by a jury for the numerous failures of the county and its employees that resulted in the wrongful death of his son, Brian Christopher Lawler. Lawler is also asking the court to order Sheriff Doolen to make changes at the Hardeman County Jail to protect all inmates from future harm."
The press release stated that the lawsuit was filed against Hardeman County, Sheriff John Doolen, and others.
Today is the one-year anniversary of Brian Lawler's death. He died at the hospital after being found hanging in his cell at Hardeman County Jail.
After Brian's death, Jerry Lawler expressed doubt over the ruling that it was a suicide.
Attorney Jeffrey Rosenblum told TMZ that any money awarded from the lawsuit will go to supporting Brian's son.
Source is f4wonline, but idk about this one...I know Lawler had to have received more details than the general public, but I never really doubted the suicide story too much. And even if there is something fishy about the death, this will probably just be settled outside of court so we'll probably never find out anyway. Either way, King has said if he wins any money from this it's going straight to Brian's son so I'm all for that.
