A man is suing a Monument-area Arby’s, claiming that a urinal burned his genitals.
The lawsuit claims that the urinal emitted a burst of steam while he was using it, causing the burns. It alleges that when he complained to an employee, the response he received indicated that this was a common problem that occurred with the urinal while the kitchen sink was in use.
The man is seeking damages for financial losses from his injuries and hopes to settle the suit outside of court.
The incident occurred two years ago, barely making the statute of limitations for personal injury cases. If you’ve been hurt through the negligence of someone else, you only have a limited amount of time to file a claim.

The warden of a super-maximum security prison is being blamed for the death of inmate Jose Martin Vega. The prisoner committed suicide on May 1, 2010.
The suit claims that the warden failed to provide the mental health treatment Vega needed. The Federal Bureau of Prisons’ policies bars prisoners with serious mental conditions from being kept in Supermax facilities according.
The wrongful death suit against the prison was filed last Tuesday in U.S. District Court by Vega’s brother. It claims that Vega was deprived of psychiatric medications that he needed while in the prison.
A wrongful death is always tragic, no matter the circumstances around it. Our condolences go out to the family of Jose Martin Vega.

A man from Denver has been sentenced after a hit-and-run accident where he struck a cyclist. He was sentenced to probation and community service and was also sentenced to 90 days in jail, which was later suspended.
The 52-year-old man was visiting his second home in Vail when the accident occurred. The man was driving his Mercedes down the roadway when he struck the cyclist that was riding on the shoulder of the road.
He then fled and tried to hide his car behind an abandoned store. The cyclist is still recovering from injuries at this time. The man had no previous criminal history and was offered a more lenient deal.
