A Michigan appeals court ruled in favor of a woman who broke her ankle on M22 in Suttons Bay.

Helen Yono of Livonia stepped into a dip in the parallel parking lane while shopping and broke her ankle.

In a 2-to-1 decision the court ruled the Michigan Department of Transportation was responsible for the pavement and is not immune from the lawsuit.
