CHARLESTON -- A Kanawha County man is suing the Charleston Town Center after he claims he was injured in a fall.

In Town Shopping Center, Inc.; Firest City Enterprises, Inc.; and Forest City Commercial Management, Inc. were also named as defendants in the suit.

On Aug. 18, 2010, Ronald L. Gillenwater II was a customer at the Charleston Town Center and was walking on the second floor when he slipped and fell, according to a complaint filed Feb. 3 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis Bloom.
