According to CBSNews.Com – The family of a man who died after a 911 call in Springfield, Ill., filed a wrongful death lawsuit Thursday against two paramedics and Lifestar, a company that provides ambulance services.

Paramedics Peter Cadigan and Peggy Finley were previously charged with first-degree murder in the death of Earl Moore Jr., who died after authorities say he was strapped facedown on a gurney in December.

“They didn’t do any of what we all know is not only the right thing to do, but the thing that’s necessary to save a person,” said attorney Bob Hilliard, who represents the Moore family. “I mean, it was Earl that night, but who’s to say who it is the next night?”
