FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A defense lawyer says a lawsuit by a woman who was injured at a Fargo Wal-Mart store on the day after Christmas should be thrown out of federal court.

Stacy Knudson says she slipped and fell on a puddle of water that had accumulated just inside the entrance of the south Fargo store. She says she couldn’t avoid the accident because of the store lightning, color of the floor and location of the puddle.

Knudson is suing Wal-Mart Stores Inc. for unspecified damages

The response filed by defense attorney Daniel Ashmore says Knudson’s own negligence contributed to her injuries. Ashmore says there were numerous customers in and around the area directly prior to the fall, which likely affected the condition of the floor.
