      Britt Family sues University of Missouri

      Lt. Bruce Britt was killed while responding to a collapsing walkway at University Village Apartments in February.

      The widow of a Columbia fireman killed in the line of duty is suing the University of Missouri.

      Lt. Bruce Britt was killed while responding to a collapsing walkway at University Village Apartments in February.

      Leigh Britt filed a lawsuit in Boone County Circuit Court that alleges University Officials knew conditions at their apartment complex were dangerous.

      The 5-page document alleges her husband??s death was the result of the Curators?? failure to correct those dangerous conditions.

      Britt??s surviving daughter is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit that is asking for a settlement of at least $25,000.

      University of Missouri spokesman John Fougere told KRCG 13 that he had no comment on the lawsuit at this time.
