SFbay.ca - The parents of a 24-year-old Palo Alto man, who was killed earlier this year after a bouncer at a San Jose restaurant punched him, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the bouncer, restaurant and its owners.

The suit filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court claims Daniel Adam Esquivel was fatally struck in the head and knocked unconscious by 28-year-old Jose Bonilla Rodas around 1:30 a.m. on March 28 at Myth Taverna and Lounge, located at 152 Post St. in downtown San Jose.

“There’s no excuse for killing someone and punching them so hard that they never get up,” said attorney Richard Alexander, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Esquivel’s parents.

Police said an investigation indicated that Esquivel stepped outside the club where he got into an argument with Rodas, a bouncer at the restaurant.

Rodas allegedly punched Esquivel, who fell down and became unconscious, police said.

Esquivel’s friends took him to Stanford Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said. Continue
