MIAMI (AP) -- A couple has filed a lawsuit against a South Florida sports bar where a deck collapsed into Biscayne Bay last week.
 
A 14-page complaint claims Shuckers Bar & Grill in North Bay Village had a duty to properly maintain its property. The complaint was filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court this week by Reynaldo Reyes and Flavia Guisella Ellemberger.
 
Officials say about 100 people -- many watching the Miami Heat play the San Antonio Spurs -- were on Shuckers' wooden deck Thursday night when it gave way. Two dozen people sustained injuries, two of which were serious.
 
Injury attorney Spencer Aronfeld told The Miami Herald (http://goo.gl/b1LqP ) that Reyes and Ellemberger were on the deck.
 
Shuckers owner Charles Grentner has refused interview requests. The family released a brief statement expressing remorse.
