Angelo Deleo filed suit against Kmart Corporation in the 24th Judicial District Court on July 2.

Deleo claims she was at the Kmart located at 2701 Belle Chasse in Gretna when he was walking down an aisle and caught his arm on a clamp connected to a fire extinguisher. The plaintiff alleges the incident resulted in a cut down his arm and wrist that have required medical treatment.
