FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) – A former Delaware state senator has sued a Maine ski resort nearly three years after he and his daughters were injured in a 35-foot fall from a broken chairlift. Michael Katz, who suffered a broken back and traumatic brain injury, was the most seriously injured of the eight people hurt in the December 2010 accident at Sugarloaf Mountain in Carrabassett Valley. His daughters, 13 and 11 at the time, suffered back and head injuries. The negligence suit filed Tuesday in Franklin County Superior Court seeks unspecified monetary damages. Katz’s attorney says the lawsuit was filed only after efforts to reach an out-of-court settlement failed. A Sugarloaf spokesman says the suit was not a surprise and the resort has reached settlements with all the other injured skiers.
