The company that designed and built the ill-fated Dallas Cowboys' practice facility knew long before the giant, tent-like structure collapsed three years ago that it was in danger of falling and concealed the problem, company documents obtained by The Associated Press reveal.
A Dallas Cowboys spokeswoman who says she was hurt when the team's practice facility collapsed during a 2009 storm has filed a lawsuit.
Companies controlled by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones have paid out about $10 million to the two employees seriously injured in the 2009 collapse of the team's practice facility, the attorney for the pair said Monday.
A former Dallas Cowboys player who was inside the team's indoor practice facility when it collapsed last year contends the accident caused a career-ending injury and he wants unspecified damages from the builder and companies operated by team owner Jerry Jones.
