Kimberly Chartier of Chicopee is seeking at least $10 million in the suit filed in Hampden Superior Court.

The suit says 40-year-old Jeffrey Chartier's heart attack was caused by a confrontation with a security guard before a game in September 2010 after their son, Tedy, was invited onto the field by two NFL officials. The boy is named after former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi.

Lawyers for the team and the other defendants refused comment when contacted by The Republican newspaper of Springfield.

The suit also names the guard, the security company and stadium operators as defendants.
