In two separate incidents last year, people were hit by golf carts at the Galt Market and one has filed a lawsuit. A woman was hit by a golf cart on her left leg and hip in March and a man said his foot was run over in November.

The first collision happened on March 16, when Maria Cattolico, the police chief's wife, backed into Sacramento resident Olga Galitsiyan. Cattolico was working part-time at the market when she struck Galitsiyan, who was in the last aisle of the market heading to the exit.

    What a scam!!!!!!!!! This is absolutely rediculous. She didn't even fall down!! where are the medical reports?? Who is the sham lawyer that is driving this lawsuit?? This is the type of thing that makes me want to organize the citizens of Galt to rally together, because either way this will cost the city (US) a lot of money to fight. There needs to be some penalty for the individual and the lawyer who bring outrageous lawsuits like this to the court and waste our time. This is a lowlife scumbag who just wants what they are to lazy to get.

    this is why the city should take the golf carts back to the golf course and tackle their dutys at the "flea market" the old fashioned way one foot in front of thee other you cannot manuver a golf cart safely around packs of people scurrying from one booth to the next looking for their favorite music artists pirated cd or unlicensed raiders jersey the patrons there do not even look were they are walking they will push their overpopulated baby strollers right over your foot if you are not paying attention ive seen it happen
