YES! Common Sense Prevails! :eek:

MASON CITY, Iowa A jury has sided with Mason City in a lawsuit filed by a man who claimed an open fire hydrant caused his motorcycle accident.

James Kleven of Mason City was injured in June 2003. He sued the city for negligence, claiming an open fire hydrant being used to water flowers caused the accident.

He claimed there was two to three inches of water in the street, causing him to lose control of his motorcycle.

The city claims that Kleven had been drinking before the crash. He was not charged with drunken driving.

A Cerro Gordo County jury ruled yesterday that the city was not negligent.
