    Montgomery County is suing a county librarian who won about $5,500 in workers' compensation for hurting herself while trying to retrieve a shampoo bottle from her car during her lunch break, court records show. Ginger Wilson, 64, said a gust of wind blew her car door into her while she was getting into her car at the Twinbrook library, causing her to fall and hurt her left arm, knee and foot. Wilson was trying to get a shampoo bottle because she had scheduled a hair appointment for her lunch break, court records show.  Wilson had surgery on her left wrist because of the injury and filed a workers' compensation claim. The Maryland Workers' Compensation Commission found that her injuries arose "out of and in the course of employment" and awarded her six weeks' worth of workers' compensation. (Examiner)
