A guest of a Chicago hotel is suing over claims he slipped and fell on ice and snow at the facility on New Year’s Eve.

Curtis Meeks filed a lawsuit May 20 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, citing negligence.

Meeks, who claims he has suffered and will continue to suffer injuries, is seeking damages in excess of $50,000. He is being represented by attorneys at Susan E. Loggans & Associates P.C.
