HANOVER, Md. (AP) - A man is suing Baltimore-based Cordish Companies for injuries he says he received after being struck by a roulette ball at Hanover’s Maryland Live casino.

The Capital of Annapolis (https://bit.ly/1fGFznH ) reports that Leander Stocks filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Washington last November. According to online court records, on Friday, U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta denied a motion by Cordish Companies to dismiss the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, Stocks was struck just above his left eye by a roulette ball in December 2013.

Stocks says an employee squeezed eye drops into Stocks’ eye without his consent, causing him to become disoriented and hit his head against a wood door, knocking him unconscious.

Stocks is suing the casino on two counts of negligence and battery, seeking $150,000 on each count.
