Northern Idaho Couple Sues Kroc Center Over Injury Claim

September 6, 2011

A northern Idaho woman is suing a Salvation Army community center in Coeur d’Alene, saying she suffered injuries and emotional distress after she was tripped by a negligent employee at the facility last year.

Sheri Stone filed the lawsuit with her husband, Gene, earlier this week in Idaho’s 1st District Court against The Salvation Army, the Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center and an unnamed male employee.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports Stone claims the employee was playing pool and not paying attention to his surrounding when he tripped her and she fell to the ground, suffering “grievous and permanent injuries.”

The couple is seeking damages in excess of $10,000.

Kroc Center executive Director John Chamness said Friday he had not yet reviewed the lawsuit.
