Freddie Mitchell filed a lawsuit on March 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against F. Greek Bristol Properties LP and H.T. Sweeney & Son Inc., citing negligence.
According to the complaint, H.T. Sweeney & Son had a contract with F. Greek Bristol Properties for snow removal at Bristol Properties' facilities in Levittown, Pennsylvania.

Mitchell seeks compensatory damages, interest, and cost of the suit. He is represented by Kevin Riechelson of the Law Offices of Kemensky, Cohen & Riechelson, in Trenton, NJ.
