CHARLESTON -- A woman is suing the Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary No. 519 after she was injured at a picnic.

On Sept. 13, 2009, Caroline Redwine was attending a picnic at the defendant's place of business and began descending steps onto the patio when she slipped on a substance on the steps, according to a complaint filed Sept. 12 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Redwine claims the substance on the steps caused her to land on her right side and incur injury to herself.

The defendant's negligence caused Redwine to sustain various injuries, including a right ankle sprain, right foot pain, a torn right rotator cuff and left knee pain, according to the suit.

Redwine is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by Michael L. Glasser.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis H. Bloom.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 11-C-1605
