May trial tentatively set for BISD in suit alleging bus driver caused collision
Two years ago, the Southeast Texas Record reported on litigation filed by Brenda Narcisse, a Jefferson County resident, who sued the Beaumont Independent School District and one of its bus drivers.
On Jan. 7, BISD filed a motion for entry of docket control order, requesting the case be tried in May, the motion states.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is expected to approve the motion later this month.
In her suit, Narcisse alleges she was hit by a bus on March 19, 2007, when BISD driver Michael Wayne Pete failed to stop at a stop sign.
Narcisse claims she was stopped for a stop sign at the intersection of Monica Lane and Washington Boulevard in Beaumont when Pete failed to yield the right-of-way and struck her vehicle.
Narcisse is seeking damages for her permanent injuries and suffered physical pain and mental anguish in the past and future and disfigurement in the past and future.
Attorney Charlton P. Hornsby of Beaumont represents her.
Houston attorney David Oubre of the Adams & Heald law firm represents BISD.
Case No. E183-563
