The suit, filed in late July, names the Giants and the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, which operated Giants Stadium. The stadium was torn down this year to make way for the new Meadowlands Stadium that is owned by the Giants and Jets.
The Jets were not sued.
Evan Foulke, an attorney for the Munozes, said his clients notified security personnel at halftime about fans who were becoming unruly, but that no action was taken. The incident occurred near the end of the game, a 16-9 Jets win, and left
Michelle Munoz with cervical spine injuries, according to the lawsuit.
The suit seeks unspecified damages.
Through spokesmen, the Giants and the sports authority declined comment on the suit Monday.
