Attorney: Civil Suit Not Formally Filed

The attorney for the family of Cale Nelson, the man shot and wounded in a Chisholm bar last month, says a lawsuit against the city of Chisholm and chamber has not been formally filed.

Larry Stern, a Minneapolis attorney, tells the Northland's NewsCenter despite the city's claims on Monday about being named in a suit - the city has only been put on notice.

The issue stems from the March shooting at Jim's Sports Club Bar and Grill, that left one man dead and two others, including Nelson, wounded.

Mayor Mike Jugovich said Monday the city is taking the proper steps in this matter and will be represented by the League of Minnesota cities if a lawsuit is filed.
