Theodore Thomas filed a premises liability lawsuit Sept. 13 in Cook County Circuit Court against Jewel-Osco, doing business as New Albertson's Inc., Supervalu Inc., ASP Realty Inc. and American Stores Properties.

According to the complaint, Thomas was walking toward the cashier at the defendants' store on Howard Street in Evanston on Sept. 27, 2012, when he slipped on water or a cleaning substance on the floor and sustained injuries.
