Trial is set to begin June 18 in a Madison County slip and fall lawsuit against Shop 'N Save grocery story of Edwardsville.

Julie Varble sued in 2011 over an alleged incident that occurred in June 2007.

Varble says she was shopping at the Troy Road store when she stepped onto a soda pallet so she could reach a couple of cases of soda. As she stepped off the pallet, Varble claims, she tripped over another case of soda stacked beside the display.

Varble says the case she tripped over was lying on the floor in the aisle and, because she was carrying other cases of soda, she was unable to see it.

Varble accuses Shop 'N Save Warehouse Foods of negligence and seeks at least $50,000 in damages for medical costs and court fees.

Attorney Peter J. Maag of Wood River represents Varble.

Madison County Circuit Judge Dave Hylla presides.
