On behalf of Michael Lee Beverly--who died two years ago after being attacked at work--Delores Beverly is suing the decedent's East St. Louis employer, American Pallet-Midwest, for not providing adequate security.

Filed Sept. 13 in St. Clair County Circuit Court, the suit claims Beverly was the victim of a "vicious physical attack" on Sept. 13, 2003.

The two-count complaint seeks to recover more than $100,000 in damages.

Beverly, who is represented by Michael K. Nowak of Kujawski & Nowak in O'Fallon, also claims American Pallet did not provide adequate lighting in its facility and failed to seek timely emergency medical treatment for the decedent.
