NBC sued over suicide


The sister of a former Texas state prosecutor who killed himself after being targeted by NBC's "Dateline" as a suspected pedophile is suing NBC for 105 million. The lawsuit charges that the production team pressured police to arrest the man after he contacted a decoy posing on the Internet as a 13-year-old boy, but did not come to a "sting house" as some other suspected online predators did. The man shot himself when police and a camera crew showed up at his home.
