CHARLESTON -- A St. Albans man is suing Prima Marketing after he claims it is responsible for injuries he sustained.

Prima Marketing is doing business as Prima 7-Eleven in St. Albans.

On Oct. 1, 2008, Danny Lockhart was at the 7-Eleven in St. Albans and was exiting the premises when he discovered the door was stuck, according to a complaint filed Oct. 1 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
