A Dallas Cowboys spokeswoman who says she was hurt
when the team's practice facility collapsed during a 2009 storm has
filed a lawsuit.

Jancy Briles is suing companies involved in building or
designing the steel and fabric structure. The lawsuit says she
suffered "serious, disabling and permanent injuries."

The Cowboys were conducting a rookie minicamp when the
88,000-square-foot building fell in a wind storm. Special teams
coach Joe DeCamillas suffered a broken vertebra, while Cowboys
scout Rich Behm was left paralyzed.

The defendants include Summit Structures LLC of Allentown, Pa.,
and its Canadian parent, Cover-All Building Systems Inc. Cover-All
was dissolved after filing for bankruptcy in 2010.

Briles' attorney didn't return messages for comment Wednesday.
Briles is the daughter of Baylor football coach Art Briles.
