MADISON - A personal injury lawsuit against the City of Danville has been settled and dismissed.

On March 19, both parties announced to the Court that all matters and differences between them had been fully settled, compromised and adjusted, according to a dismissal order filed March 20 in Boone Circuit Court.

Harry Cantley claimed the City of Danville was responsible for maintaining the sidewalk where he tripped and fell in September 2009, according to a complaint filed Sept. 7, 2011, in Boone Circuit Court.

Cantley claimed the sidewalk located near the intersection of Fourth Street and Smooth Avenue had a raised portion where pavement from Fourth Street abutted it.

Because of the sidewalk, Cantley sustained injuries that included a broken wrist, two black eyes and facial contusions, according to the suit.
