NEW YORK - The family of a Korean immigrant who died after allegedly being pushed into the path of a New York City subway train has filed a lawsuit against the city's transit authority.
The lawsuit filed Friday by the family of Ki-Suck Han seeks unspecified damages stemming from his December 3 death. It accuses the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of negligence.
Police say a homeless man admitted pushing Han onto the tracks but said Han was drunk and instigated the confrontation.
Naeem Davis has been charged in Han's death and is being held without bail. His attorney has said Han went after his client.
