Ball State alumna files lawsuit against university after finger injury
A Ball State student who suffered finger injuries on campus two years ago is now suing the university.
In October 2014, former Ball State student and 2016 alumna Brittny Huffman was attaching a banner to the "fly swatter" — an advertising billboard near the Scramble Light at Riverside and McKinley avenues — according to Huffman's lawsuit served on Sept. 26.
While removing a sign from the billboard, Huffman's lawsuit said she suffered finger injuries, leading the sign to be deemed dangerous in the suit, which also accuses the university of negligence, carelessness and failure to warn.
Students are no longer allowed to add or remove signs from the fly swatter, according to university facilities and management.
University spokesperson Joan Todd declined to comment on the lawsuit.
