Lawsuit, after fall on Catholic church steps, fails

By From page A5 | August 06, 2014

FAIRFIELD — The suit filed by a woman who wanted $363,000 after she said a rock on the concrete steps of St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church in Vallejo caused her to fall, hit her face on the pavement and knock three teeth out fails to allege facts suggesting defendants can be held liable, a Solano County Superior Court ruling holds.

Manuela Viray said in her suit naming the church pastor and others that she was going home July 29, 2012, after Sunday Mass when the accident occurred at 925 Sacramento St. Three months of recuperation were necessary, Viray said.

Viray, who represented herself, did not attend a Tuesday court hearing when the tentative ruling by Judge Harry Kinnicutt was adopted. Viray could not be reached for comment.

Damages she sought included $300,000 for pain and suffering.
