Entergy is in trial this week in Jefferson County over an employee's 2007 automobile collision.

Michael James Milson filed suit against Entergy and its employee, Henry Carmouche, in February 2008, alleging he was injured after being rear ended.

On Monday, Sept. 27 jury selection began in the trial of Milson vs. Entergy. Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is presiding.

Court papers show that on Feb. 5, 2007, Milson was turning east onto Thomas Boulevard in Port Arthur when his vehicle was rear ended by an Entergy truck driven by Carmouche, who was in the course and scope of his employment.

In his suit, Milson claims he suffered severe physical injuries and property damages.

He alleges Carmouche negligently failed to keep a proper lookout and apply his brakes in time. He is blaming Entergy for failing to properly train and supervise him.

Milson is asking jurors to award him damages for his alleged mental anguish, impairment, pain and medical expenses.

Provost Umphrey attorney Jane Leger is representing him.

Entergy and Carmouche are represented by Beaumont attorney Christine Kibbe.

Case No. D186-445
