Basil Glover of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on April 30 versus Liberty 725 East Erie Avenue LLC, Liberty Coca Cola Beverages Production Center and Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, both of Philadelphia.

Glover avers that on Aug. 9, 2016, he was walking on the sidewalk outside the Coca Cola facility on Erie Avenue, when a broken piece of said sidewalk caused him to fall and receive a number of serious injuries.
