BUTTE, Mont. (AP) -- The parents of a 21-year-old Anaconda man who committed suicide in March have filed a lawsuit against a bar alleging its employees contributed to his death by continuing to serve him drinks when he was intoxicated.

Shawn and Jody Glanton filed the lawsuit in District Court Wednesday against the owners of Ted and Julie's Park Street Party Palace and Cafe.

The lawsuit says Matthew Glanton won a contest that gave him free drinks for an hour and that his March 9 suicide was the result of extreme intoxication.

Bar owner Ted Deschner told The Montana Standard that the allegations against the bar are not true.
