On Dec. 3, 2009, Lillian A. Crawford was a non-trespassing entrant at Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens, which is owned and/or operated by the defendants, according to a complaint filed Nov. 28 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Crawford claims while on the defendants' property, she was unable to see and fell over an obstruction in the parking lot.
