BOSTON (AP) - A Saudi Arabian man injured in the Boston Marathon bombings has filed a defamation lawsuit against Glenn Beck, accusing the conservative commentator of saying on the air that the plaintiff was "the money man" behind the attack.

In the federal lawsuit filed Friday in Boston, Abdulrahman Alharbi says his reputation was "substantially and severely damaged" as a result of Beck's statements tying him to the bombings.

The 20-year-old Alharbi, who attends college in the Boston area, says in his lawsuit that he was injured in the bombings and was questioned by authorities who searched his apartment before determining he had no connection to the attack.

His lawsuit seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.

Beck's agent didn't immediately respond to a phone call Tuesday seeking comment on the lawsuit.
