A Newscomerstown man who claims he was injured when a stack of dog food bowls fell on him is suing Wal-Mart for nearly one million dollars. Richard Whittington’s lawsuit is scheduled to begin today in Coshocton County Common Pleas Court. Whittington claims an employee was stacking the dog food bowls on shelves at the Coshocton Wal-Mart, when eight or nine fell, hitting him on the neck and shoulder. He says he received two small cuts that took three to four months to heal. Whittington, who will serve as his own attorney, says he plans to use a mental anguish argument in court. Wal-Mart attorney Patrick Kasson said in a trial brief filed June 25th that Whittington caused the bowls to call himself.
