June 25
Ronald G. White Jr. v. Dick's Sporting Goods
PA-Jacques R. Williams; Judge N/A
* While a customer at Dick's Sporting Goods in Granville, a floor model piece of exercise equipment attracted White's attention. In order for him to further assess the equipment, it was necessary for him to slightly move it so the movement of its parts would not interfere with other merchandise in close proximity. White pulled on the leg attachment to slide the equipment forward and upon doing so, the cords that were connected to the leg attachments snapped and flipped into his face. After the store manager took White's statement, it was determined that the attachment's spring loaded locking pin was not in place. White is seeking judgment for fair and just compensation, pre- and post-judgment interest and costs.
