MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A man has lost his lawsuit against a store over the use of a motorized store cart in Mason City.
            
Shane Zahn, of Garner, is missing his right leg below the knee and most of his left foot has been amputated. He had sued in November 2017 for an unspecified amount. His lawsuit said he wasn't allowed to use one of the carts in April 2017 to take his purchases out to his car, so he had to walk out on his hands and knees. The store chain sells a variety of home, outdoors and lawn and garden products.
            
Mills Fleet Farm says Zahn was informed store policy didn't allow the carts out into the parking lot and that he could have used a manual wheelchair provided by Fleet Farm to return to his car.
            
A Cerro Gordo County jury took just 15 minutes Friday to return a verdict favoring Mills Fleet Farm.
