Relatives of a worker trampled to death in a crush of post-Thanksgiving bargain-hunters at a Long Island Wal-Mart store has filed court papers indicating they intend to sue Nassau County and its police department.

A notice of claim--the first step toward suing a municipality--was filed Tuesday in state Supreme Court. It claims the county and police were negligent, careless and reckless in their actions before the Nov. 28 stampede in Valley Stream that killed Jdimytai "Jimmy" Damour.

Nassau County Attorney Lorna Goodman says there is no merit to the claims.

Damour's family has said it intends to refile a lawsuit against Wal-Mart and others, which was dropped after the relatives changed lawyers. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has said it will work with officials to develop stronger safety measures.
