DULUTH, Minn. -- The family of a Duluth man has filed a lawsuit against a local bar, alleging that alcohol sales to the drunken man contributed to his death of exposure.


The lawsuit was filed against the Copasetic Lounge in the death of 22-year-old Scott Miner, who died in a parking lot on Jan. 25, 2009.

Court documents indicate Miner left the bar about 2 a.m. and his body was found just before 9 a.m. after spending the night in 17 degrees below zero.
