A Sugar Land resident is suing the City of Houston after, he says, an improperly
maintained manhole cover caused him serious harm.
Sugar Land Michael Lee filed a lawsuit on Nov. 17 in Harris County District Court against the City of Houston, citing negligence.
Lee says on Dec.5, 2009, he sustained injuries when he fell several feet into a partially covered manhole, located at the intersection of 2100 San Jacinto and 1200 Gray. According to the brief, the city maintained the property where Lee was injured and should have properly monitored the manhole.
Lee is seeking damages and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Cassandra Evans-Jones.
