Some time ago, when N. D. Gagnier, a well known printer, sued the city of Fargo for damages sustained from a fall off his bicycle which struck some obstruction on the sidewalk, he was given a verdict of $300. The city appealed the case to the supreme court. It was contended that bicycle riders had no right on the sidewalks and if Gagnier had been riding his bicycle on the streets, where vehicles belonged, he would not have received the injuries alleged. The supreme court has reversed the decision of the lower court and ordered a new trial.
