OROVILLE – A quilting camp attendee alleges she was injured at a Forbestown property because of a log that partially blocked a walkway.

Sheila Pond filed a complaint on Feb. 15 in the Butte Superior Court against Pioneer Quilters Guild, Mount Hope Bible Camp and Does 1-20 alleging premises liability.

According to the complaint, on April 18, 2017, Pond was at Mount Hope Bible Camp at a quilting camp hosted by the Pioneer Quilters and tripped over a log that partially blocked the walkway to exit the chapel. She alleges she was injured because of the fall.

The plaintiff holds Pioneer Quilters Guild, Mount Hope Bible Camp and Does 1-20 responsible because the defendants allegedly allowed the log to be present on the walkway without illumination from exterior lighting.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for general damages of more than $50,000, plus prejudgment interest, costs of suit incurred, and such other and further relief as the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by James R. Donahue and Michael E. Myers of Donahue Davies LLP in Sacramento.
