North Dakota man sues American Crystal for causing fall

GRAND FORKS — A man who claims American Crystal Sugar Co.'s failure to keep ice off a scale platform caused his fall and injury is suing the company for $50,000.

Dean Dauner filed his suit in Traill County on Wednesday. His lawsuit alleges that the slippery conditions at a Hillsboro scale in January 2005, led to his fall.

The lawsuit says the fall caused Dauner to put his left hand through a window at a weigh station building. The suit says he had severe lacerations to his left hand.
