Former Monterey School Superintendant Sues City- 12/17/14 10:30 S.G.

A former Monterey school superintendent has sued the city while recovering from an injury she sustained after tripping in a pothole. In April, 58-year-old Marilyn Shepherd stepped into a hole on the 100 block of Webster Street. She fell and sustained a fractured left ankle and a sprained right ankle.  Shepherd has filed a legal claim against the city for $750,000, saying her injury to her left ankle will permanently limit her enjoyment of everyday activities. Her husband is asking for an additional $50,000 for the emotional distress he experienced when his wife was injured. The Monterey City Council has rejected the claim and maintains the city is not liable for any damages resulting from Shepherd’s fall.
