LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A man who slipped and fell while delivering food at the State Office Building in Lincoln has won $60,000 from the state.

A Lancaster County district judge last week ruled in favor of Gerald Burkinshaw, whose right wrist was broken in the fall on Jan. 19, 2016.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that a state attorney argued that Burkinshaw’s claim was barred because weather caused the fall - snow tracked inside the building melted.

But Judge Kevin McManaman said in his order that danger occurred inside the building and wasn’t out of the state’s control.
