Florida Man Sues City Of Linton After Falling In Manhole

Last updated on Thursday, October 27, 2011

(LINTON) - A trial date has been set in the civil tort lawsuit against the city of Linton and the Linton Parks and Recreation Department.

Robert L. Mowry, of Sebring, Fla., is seeking medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering damages after he was injured at the Phil Harris Golf course on Aug. 23, 2010.

A jury trail was set for June 5, 2012. According to court documents, Mowry says he was golfing at the city-owned golf course when he stepped on a manhole cover. The cover came off and he fell into the hole.

The suit claims the city is negligent in allowing a condition to exist that caused Mowry's injuries.

The complaint does not ask for a specific amount, but requests that the court award him an amount which will "fairly and adequately compensate" him for expenses associated with his injuries and damages and for the costs of bringing the lawsuit.
