Jury selection began Monday in a lawsuit filed by man injured by falling ice at Cowboys Stadium in the days before Super Bowl XLV.
Severin Sampson filed a lawsuit claiming the team didn't do enough to protect workers who were preparing the stadium for Super Bowl XLV in 2011. A massive ice and snow storm hit the region that week.
Sampson was one of six people hurt. He was working as a sound engineer and said the head injury damaged his hearing.
Sampson's attorney said the Cowboys and the stadium architects didn't take the possibility of falling ice into account when designing the sloped roof of the venue.
The judge hearing the case ruled Monday he would allow Sampson's positive test for marijuana on the day of the incident to be admissible in the trial.
