Judge sues city for negligently using a mop

A New York judge is suing the city for one million dollars after slipping on a freshly-mopped floor in his own courthouse.

Supreme Court Justice Jack Battaglia is even targeting the courthouse cleaning lady who wielded the mop, according to legal papers.

Judge Battaglia, who broke a knee in the accident, accuses the city of “negligently using a mop bucket and wringer” and “negligently using a mop and soapy water” to create a “dangerous and hazardous traplike condition”. – lep
