Woman sues Mahoning Co. commissioners after fall at courthouse



Published: Fri, January 25, 2013 @ 4:49 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A Campbell woman has sued the Mahoning County commissioners for more than $25,000 due to a right-ankle injury she said she suffered in a March 31, 2011, fall as she descended freshly waxed marble interior stairs in the county courthouse.

Pamela Gurd, 37, of 15th Street, filed the suit, which demands a jury trial, today in common pleas court. The suit, which says the county negligently created a slippery and dangerous condition, is assigned to Judge R. Scott Krichbaum.

Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Emery said in an incident report he didn’t see any foreign objects that would have contributed to Gurd’s fall and that an ambulance took Gurd to St. Elizabeth Health Center for treatment.

Prosecutor Paul J. Gains, who represents the commissioners, declined to comment on the lawsuit.
