Philip M. Hardy filed a lawsuit Dec. 21 in Madison County Circuit Court against Supervalu Inc., Supervalu Holdings Inc., Shop 'N Save Warehouse Foods Inc. and Shop 'N Save St. Louis Inc., all doing business as Shop 'N Save.
Hardy was delivering products to the Berkshire Boulevard Shop 'N Save in January 2011, according to the complaint, when he was hit by a Shop 'N Save employee driving a forklift commonly called a "power jack." Hardy claims the tendons in his right ankle were torn in the incident.
