Last week, a Cedar Rapids letter carrier who fell down some steps while on duty has lost another round in his legal battle against the owners of the property.
The incident occurred in November of 2005 when the carrier walked up the owners' driveway to deliver their mail to the mailbox. As he walked across their yard towards a nearby apartment complex, he fell down some steps.
About two years later he filed his lawsuit and it reached the courts in 2009. The carrier testified that he had slipped on those steps a number of times as well as asked the property owners to clear them several times before. The jury found the owners were at fault but not legally responsible for the injury.
The Court of Appeals has rejected the carrier's request for another trial.
