Last March, the Southeast Texas Record reported on a suit filed by Louisiana resident Calvin Clary, who was injured after a glass door shattered on him while working at ExxonMobil's Beaumont facility.

On Nov. 5 Clary's attorney, John Werner of Reaud, Morgan & Quinn, filed an amended notice of oral hearing, advising the chemical giant that a hearing to compel response to discovery well be held on Dec. 16.

Court papers show that Clary's alleged injury occurred on Sept. 29, 2009, when glass in a door in an area known as Switchgear 2 shattered.

He sued ExxonMobil claiming the company negligently failed to provide him with a safe environment and failed to inspect the worksite to make sure it was safe.

Clary is seeking damages for his alleged lost earnings, lost his earning capacity, experienced pain and suffering and incurred medical expenses.

ExxonMobil is represented by Houston attorney Todd Kissner.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is presiding over the case proceedings.

Case No. D183-398
