    A lawsuit has been filed over another North Texas high school football stadium because of structural problems.

    The top 15 rows at the Corsicana Independent School District's Tiger Stadium are now closed.

    Engineers assisting the district with the lawsuit made the safety recommendation this week.

    In a letter sent out Friday, the district's superintendent said engineers recommended closing off seven rows of bleachers but the district decided to close 15 rows.

    Engineers say some of the columns under the home-side bleachers can only support about half the weight required by the building code.

    The cost of construction of Tiger Stadium was $18 million and was complete in September 2006. Concerns about the stadium issues were reported in September 2013.
