A couple visiting a casino is suing the establishment after one of them fell and sustained injuries.


Doreen and John McGettigan filed a lawsuit Feb. 10 in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas against Chester Downs and Marina L.L.C., doing business as Harrah's Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack and/or Harrah's Philadelphia, and Harrah's Chester Downs Management Company L.L.C., doing business as Harrah's Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack and/or Harrah's Philadelphia, citing negligence.
