In a court document filed Friday, the city offers 20 defenses, one of which states that the family’s “injuries, losses and damages … were directly and proximately caused by the acts of the Plaintiff’s decedent (Rice), not this Defendant.”

The city also argues that Rice failed to “exercise due care to avoid injury.”
