Point Pleasant, W.Va. (AP) -- A woman whose daughter was killed when a filing cabinet fell on her is suing the victim's employer.
Lawyers for Lori McCoy filed the wrongful death lawsuit in Mason County Circuit Court.
It names Dr. John A Wade Jr., president of the state board of medicine, his private practice and Steelcase Inc., the cabinet's manufacturer.
Point Pleasant police say McCoy's 17-year-old daughter, Andrya Lynn Jordan, was filing papers in a storage building when the five-drawer cabinet fell in November 2006.
Emergency personnel found Jordan pinned between the cabinet and a jeep.
The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, accuses wade of failing to provide a safe and non-hazardous work environment.
Calls to Steelcase and an attorney for wade weren't immediately returned Tuesday.
