Newburgh, NY -- A trial has been scheduled for early next year in the lawsuit filed against an upstate New York church by a man whose leg had to be amputated after a 600-pound crucifix fell on him.

Attorney Kevin Kitson says his client, David Jimenez, prayed at the crucifix outside St. Patrick's Church in Newburgh after his wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. When she recovered, he showed his thanks by volunteering to clean the cross.

In May 2010, the crucifix fell on him, crushing his right leg. It was later amputated.

He's suing the church for $3 million.

The church says it's not liable for the accident.
