(Washington, DC) –A Metro customer is suing the transit agency for a 2009 incident involving an elevator at the Forest Glen rail station . According to the “Examiner,” Juana Foster is seeking more than 500-thousand dollars from Metro after the elevator she was riding in “suddenly and without warning dropped down violently,” throwing her to the floor. Foster’s attorney Joel Finkelstein says his client tore cartilage in her right knee, which required surgery and she strained her back. Metro has declined to comment about the pending litigation. Last fall, a report by outside consultants faulted Metro for poor maintenance, saying neglect has led to escalator and elevator problems.
