Family of Perrysburg Twp. shooting victim file lawsuit

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP (WTOL) - The family of victim in a Perrysburg Township workplace shooting have filed a lawsuit.

Family members of Douglas Smith filed suit against the Liberty Trucking Company. They claim the company should have screened better before hiring Calvin Neyland, who shot and killed Smith and another employee in 2007.

They also claim Liberty knew of Neyland's violent tendencies and knowingly put Smith in harm's way when Neyland was fired.

Neyland is currently on death row.
