Judge dismisses lawsuit over fallen tree branch

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a woman injured when a tree branch fell on her on a paved path near Mission Bay. 

Lorin Toeppe was asking for $25 million in damages. The lawsuit alleged the path was a dangerous condition and the City of San Diego was responsible. 

City lawyers argued that cities aren't responsible for the conditions of pathways that lead to recreational or scenic areas. 

Toeppe suffered several injuries in the accident, including broken bones in her face and leg.
