ARLINGTON, Texas — Six Flags Over Texas is shifting the blame in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of Rosy Esparza.

Esparza died July 19 after she was thrown from the new Texas Giant roller coaster.

In a legal filing, Six Flags said it doesn't have any liability because it didn't design or build the cars used on the coaster.

Six Flags also defended its inspection record and the staff's response to the deadly accident.
