LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A jogger who blamed Lincoln officials after falling on an uneven sidewalk has lost her lawsuit against the city.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1NqDQQI ) Lancaster County District Judge Andrew Jacobsen dismissed the lawsuit Dawn Amory filed.

Amory had been seeking more than $19,000 for medical expenses she incurred after falling and breaking her pelvis four years ago. She argued the city should have found and fixed the sidewalk tile that was raised about an inch sooner.

Jacobsen says Amory didn’t show the city was neglecting the more than 1,500 miles of sidewalk it maintains.

And no one had complained about the problem beforehand. Amory herself had run through the same area at least 20 times.
