Lawsuit filed in exploding keg case

`The “reckless” action of the party host precipitated the explosion that killed a 22-year-old New Milford man and injured several others last fall, according to a lawsuit filed in Danbury Superior Court.

The legal action, filed on behalf of Darren Snyder, a 36-year-old restaurant owner who was hurt in the blast, identifies Matt Johnson as the person who tossed an empty beer keg into the fire during a pig roast on his parent’s Aspetuck Ridge Road property in October.

After cooking for several hours, the stainless steel keg blew up, taking the life of another party guest, Sean Caselli.’
