Pete Tidd, an Elvis impersonator, won $600,000 in an injury lawsuit against the town of Cicero. Tidd injured his left leg in 2002 after stepping into an exposed manhole. He was hoping to recover roughly $140,000 in medical expenses, but the Maybrook Courthouse jury decided he should get more because the accident limited his mobility to the point he couldn't perform karate kicks or other maneuvers needed for his act.
