CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey judge who was injured in a fall outside a courthouse has filed a $1 million claim against the city of Camden.

The Courier-Post reported Friday Camden County Assignment Judge Deborah Silverman Katz says in her claim that she suffered multiple fractures and injuries in a fall outside the courthouse May 25.

Silverman Katz says she was walking on a sidewalk when she tripped on an exposed metal object. She says in her claim that the sidewalk was in “dangerous condition,” and the city, parking authority and county were negligent in failing to fix it.

A county spokesman says the property is not owned or maintained by the county.

City officials have not responded to requests for comment.
