Paso Robles pub faces wrongful death suit

Pappy McGregor's, a popular pub in Downtown Paso Robles, is facing a wrongful death lawsuit after a man was found dead on nearby train tracks in July 2010.

Within the pages of the suit, it says Bryan Brady was celebrating his 21st birthday at The Crooked Kilt-- now known as Pappy McGregor's-- before he died.

Don and Catherine Brady, Bryan's parents, filed the suit October 5, and are seeking unspecified damages.

It states that Bryan was intoxicated when he let into the bar, and became involved in a fight. He was then escorted outside by security, where he was hit in the head and knocked unconscious by another patron.

The lawsuit states that The Crooked Kilt was negligent because "security staff did not call 911 to summon police and/or medical attention" for Brady even though they knew he was drunk and had suffered an injury.

It says "other patrons, unknown to the defendants, picked up his limp, unconscious body and carried him away."

The lawsuit does not state where those patrons took Bryan, or how he ended up on the train tracks.

In response to the wrongful death suit, the owners of Pappy McGregor's have said, they are interviewing employees and gathering facts on what happened that tragic night.

The attorney representing the Brady family would not comment because of the ongoing case.
