Brothers Attacked By Tiger Allege Negligence, Defamation

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Two brothers who were attacked by an
escaped tiger at the San Francisco Zoo have filed claims against
the city alleging negligence and defamation.

Mark Geragos, who is representing Kulbir and Amritpal Dhaliwal,
submitted papers seeking monetary compensation for "serious physical and emotional injuries" on Wednesday. The claims are a prerequisite to filing a civil lawsuit.

The documents allege the city and the San Francisco Zoological Society failed in their duty to provide a safe zoo environment, defamed the brothers by spreading falsehoods about their possible role in provoking the attack and improperly impounded Kulbir Dhaliwal's car.
