The family of a New York City man killed by a subway train after being pushed to his death by a homeless person has filed a lawsuit against the city.

The lawsuit filed Friday by the family of Ki-Suk Han seeks unspecified damages stemming from his Dec. 3 death. It accuses the MTA of negligence.

Police say a homeless man admitted pushing Han onto the tracks but said Han was drunk and instigated the confrontation.

The family is suing for funeral costs and unspecified damages.

An MTA spokesman said the agency doesn't comment on pending litigation.

Naeem Davis has pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter charges for pushing the 58-year-old Han off the subway platform near Times Square. He is being held without bail. His attorney has said Han went after his client.
