Giants sued by woman claiming she was assaulted at a game

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants have been sued by a woman and her husband who claim she was attacked by fans during a New York Jets game played at Giants Stadium last year.

Michelle Munoz says she attended the Sept. 20 game against the New England Patriots and was assaulted by Jets fans and thrown to the ground, causing her to suffer back injuries.

The suit, filed in late July, names the Giants and the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, which operated Giants Stadium. The stadium was torn down this year to make way for the new Meadowlands Stadium that is owned by the Giants and Jets.

The Jets and Patriots will face each other Sept. 19 at the new stadium.

Attorneys for the Giants and the sports authority could not immediately be reached Monday.
