So, can a case be cobbled for tripping?
Stone-paved streets are potentially dangerous for pedestrians and civic bodies.
Cities across the world are replacing cobblestones; even Rome itself announced plans this June to replace cobblestones with asphalt on 70 of its busiest thoroughfares. And a Parisian has been selling such discarded ‘pavé’ stones (bought for a pittance from the city council) for €60-150 as mementos. But the question is whether two tumbles in similar cobbled terrain in New York are grounds enough for a lawyer of Clooney’s calibre to fight for the safe perambulation rights of the not-so-down-at-heel.
