After evidence was presented in a trial in 2006, the judge dismissed a personal injury case brought by Delvin Sweeney. He appealed and won a new trial set to start this week in Bronx County, New York. The case is Sweeney v. Bruckner Plaza Associates.

It all stems from an incident on December 23, 1997 when Sweeney, a quadriplegic, drove his specialized vehicle to a shopping center, parked it and found it missing on his return a half hour later. He wheeled himself a mile or so to the tow yard and claims he thereby suffered substantial injuries - pneumonia from exposure to the cold weather and hand, wrist and forearm injuries from the bumpy ride along New York City sidewalks.
