GREAT MOMENTS IN THE LAW

BROOKLYN PAPER - Councilwoman Letitia James has filed a personal injury suit against an itinerant laborer after she allegedly injured herself walking into his legally parked truck.

The Democratic lawmaker, who makes $122,500 a year as the people's representative in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill, is seeking an unspecified amount of damages for wounds she claims to have sustained on July 11 when she walked into a four-inch trailer hitch protruding from David Day's parked car.

James sustained "serious, severe and permanent [injuries] to her limbs and body" and "she will be caused to suffer . . . continuous pain and inconvenience," according to court papers filed last month in Brooklyn Supreme Court by James's attorney Robert Mijuca of the powerful law firm of Rubenstein and Rynecki.
