On behalf of her minor daughter, Connie Purdy filed suit against area resident Melvin Porter, alleging the man's dog knocked her child into a ditch.

The suit was filed Dec. 30 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, the incident occurred on May 31, 2009.

However, the suit fails to state how the incident occurred or what type of injuries the minor plaintiff suffered.

In fact, the suit declines to list a single act of negligence on Porter's part.

The suit also does not state what type of damages the plaintiffs seek to recover.

The plaintiffs are represented by San Antonio attorney Paul Smith Jr.

The case has been assigned to Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court.

Case No. A189-052
