Roddy, who was badly hurt a year ago last fall when he fell through an open trap door in one of the exists leading from the Lyceum theater, is asking $10,000 damages for the injuries he alleges to have sustained at that time. An action which he commenced against E. B. McCutcheon, who was proprietor at that time, is being tried in district court today.
Roddy was emerging from the theater by way of an exit leading onto Second street and failed to see that the trap door was open. He sustained a broken ankle and other injuries which he claims are of a permanent nature.
