The Seattle Times reported Thursday that the high court is upholding a King County jury verdict awarding Mark Jones the money.
Court documents say Jones was injured nearly 10 years ago when he awoke in a dark bunk room at a Seattle fire station. He walked through the wrong door while looking for the restroom and fell through a fire-pole hole to the concrete floor below. His attorneys say he suffered a head injury, causing damage to his cognitive abilities.
Jones sued the city, saying the city failed to install a proper guard around the fire pole, or the door that led to it.
