Chair Exec Sues After Falling Out Of Chair

GRAND RAPIDS (AP) – The founder of a Michigan chair company is suing another furniture company after falling out of a chair and hurting his back.

The lawsuit says David Miller was attending a staff meeting at Grand Rapids Chair in 2012 when he leaned down to pick up a pencil. A chair leg broke, sending Miller crashing to the concrete floor.

Miller says sharp pain in his lower back prevented him from continuing to serve as president of the Grand Rapids-area company. A lawsuit filed Monday in Grand Rapids federal court seeks more than $75,000.

The lawsuit accuses U.S. Furniture of making a defective chair. The California-based company said no one was available to speak to a reporter Tuesday.
