The state Superior Court apparently thinks that an elevator mechanic got the shaft last year. So last week, it reinstated a $1.8 million verdict that Joann Mammoccio had won from a jury in her suit against the operators of a Center City office building. After delayed damages are calculated, Mammoccio should receive a total of $2.4 million. A lower court judge had overturned the decision and granted a new trial to the partnership that operates the facility at 1818 Market St. The jury found the partnership negligent for failing to correct a known problem with a ladder that was too close to the wall of the elevator shaft.
