In the South Bay, the parents of a 2-year-old boy killed last year when a rotting tree fell on the family pickup truck have filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

It accuses a neighbor and the city of San Jose of negligence. San Jose rejected an earlier claim for damages, saying that residents are responsible for maintaining city owned trees in front of their homes.

The suit asks for unspecified damages.
