The family of a man who died outside of a D.C. nightclub last October is suing the club's owners.

The family of Ali Ahmed Mohammed, the man who died outside of DC9 last October, filed a $15 million lawsuit this week against the owners of the nightclub.

After Mohammed was denied entry into the U Street club one evening, he allegedly threw a brick through the establishment's window. Authorities say club employees kicked and beat him after the incident.

Several employees were originally charged with murder in Mohammed's death. Eventually those charges were reduced, and then dropped by prosecutors who claimed there was insufficient evidence to prove that Mohammed had been brutally beaten.

Published reports indicated the lawsuit relies heavily on information contained in a report by the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration, and disregards the findings of the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The owners of the bar and restaurant declined comment on the lawsuit.
