On Friday, the NY Times reported that the Google engineer struck by a falling tree branch in Central Park was suing the city and Central Park Conservancy for negligence. Now, it turns out the still-hospitalized Sasha Blair-Goldensohn's lawsuit is worth $120 million.

Blair-Goldensohn was struck by a falling tree branch, estimated to weigh 100 pounds, near West Drive and West 63rd Street on July 29. His lawyer tells the Post, "Sasha sustained severe brain damage, spinal fractures and spinal-cord damage resulting in paralysis, respiratory and other serious injuries, all of which have required multiple operations and his continued hospitalization to this day."

The Post also reports, "The tree branch had been rotten and in danger of falling for some time, the city Parks Department admitted after the accident." (Blair-Goldensohn's wife, who is also a plaintiff, says the city and CPC failed to check the trees' condition.) The city's Law Department told the Times on Friday, "This is a tragic case. We have received the legal papers and are reviewing them thoroughly."
