LINTON -- A man who alleges he was injured at the Phil Harris Golf Course last summer is suing the City of Linton and its Park and Recreation Department.
In a complaint filed in Greene Circuit Court, David L. Mowry says he was golfing at the course Aug. 23, 2010, when the injury occurred.
Mowry says he stepped on a manhole on the course. The manhole cover came off, causing the golfer to fall into the manhole.
The suit says Mowry sustained injuries both temporary and permanent, though it does not specify the kind or extent of the injuries.
Mowry alleges he has incurred medical expenses, hospital expenses and pain and suffering of the body and mind and may also incur these in the future as a result of the incident.
According to the suit, he is asking for a judgment against the City of Linton, the owner of the golf course, and the Park and Recreation Department, which manages and maintains the course.
The complaint does not ask for a specific amount, but asks that Mowry be compensated in an amount which will fairly and adequately compensate him for his injuries and damages, and for the costs of the suit.
Mowry is being represented by Attorney Larry J. Wagner, from the Wagner, Crawford and Gambill law firm, Terre Haute.
The complaint filed by Wagner also requests the case be decided in a trial by jury, but no court dates have been set.
