My achin' knee

Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz has a sore knee that only a big paycheck can cure.

Glanz is suing Walmart for as much as $74,999 as the result of a fall he took in a store in Tulsa in October 2011. Settlement talks with Walmart weren’t successful, according to Glanz’s attorney. So now it’s on to court.

Glanz says he has had the knee operated on twice and “it’s still not right.” The lawsuit says he has suffered damages including bodily injuries, mental pain and suffering and loss of income, past and future. Yet county records show Glanz hasn’t missed out on any salary since getting hurt.

His attorney says the loss of income language was included in the lawsuit to preserve Glanz’s right to make that claim, and if the claim isn’t supported, they won’t pursue it. That’s awfully good of them.
