Carpenter Sues Streisand Over Ditch Injury

A carpenter is suing singing legend BARBRA STREISAND over allegations of negligence after he fell into a ditch while working at her California home.
Woodworker Daniel Ortiz was hired to help renovate the Funny Girl star's property in Malibu in 2007, but took a nasty tumble after stepping out of a trailer he was working in and falling straight into a ditch.
The carpenter claims Streisand and the contractors are guilty of negligence as they failed to make him aware of the hole in the ground, according to TMZ.com.
The suit, filed on Wednesday (02Dec09) at Los Angeles Superior Court, states the star "failed to take steps to either make the dangerous condition safe or warn" Ortiz of the ditch.
Ortiz also alleges the incident has caused him "humiliation, fear, discomfort, anxiety, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and emotional and physical distress."
He is seeking undisclosed damages.
