Woman Sues Boise URA after Slipping on Ice
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A woman who says she slipped on ice and broke an ankle while walking on the Grove Plaza in downtown Boise plans to sue the city’s urban renewal agency. The Idaho Statesman reports in a story on Friday that Sheryl Lambert filed a tort claim seeking at least $100,000. A tort claim is a precursor to a lawsuit and a first step in suing a public entity. Capital City Development Corporation is the city’s urban renewal district that owns the Grove Plaza. The agency declined to comment about the claim. Lambert says she was walking toward Downtown Boise’s New Year’s festivities when she slipped on ice and had to be taken to a hospital in an ambulance.
