Bowdens sue Saks, claiming costly injury

        Amy Bowden and her husband, Jim Bowden, general manager of the Cincinnati Reds, are suing Saks Fifth Avenue department store for more than $25,000 for injuries they say Mrs. Bowden suffered in the store in May 1999.

        According to the suit filed this week in Common Pleas Court, a store employee opened a drawer, causing several large plates to fall on Mrs. Bowden's foot. The injury, a torn meniscus, will require multiple surgeries for Mrs. Bowden, who is a professional dancer and dance instructor, the suit states.

        The plaintiffs, of Anderson Township, think the injury is permanent, causing the loss of Mrs. Bowden's earning capacity as dancer and dance instructor, the suit states.

        Attorneys Stanley M. Chesley and Colleen M. Hegge filed the suit on behalf of the plaintiffs. Officials at Saks would not comment on the suit.
