DALLAS (AP) - The family of a Dallas Cowboys practice squad player killed in a drunken-driving crash is suing the nightclub that served him and the car's driver.

Jerry Brown's family filed suit last week in a Dallas County court against Beamers Private Club of Dallas. The suit alleges the club served ''large sums of alcohol'' to Josh Brent, the former Cowboys player driving in December when his car crashed.

Police in the Dallas suburb of Irving say Brent was driving with a blood-alcohol level at twice the legal limit.

The lawsuit alleges Beamers Private is liable under Texas' ''dram shop'' law and seeks wrongful death and other damages.

The club has previously said it ''promotes responsible drinking.''

Brent faces a January trial on intoxication manslaughter and manslaughter charges.
