DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent is getting ready to testify in the civil trial of the club that served him the night he killed a teammate while driving drunk. 

This is the first time Brent has been in the courtroom for the trial of Beamers nightclub. 

Back in December 2012, Brent and teammate Jerry Brown were drinking at the club. Brown was killed later that evening when Brent rolled his car while driving with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit. 

Brown's family is suing Beamers for allegedly overserving Brent that night.

Brent has previously been convicted of intoxication manslaughter and was sentenced to probation and 180 days in jail.
