A September trial setting has been slated in a motor vehicle collision suit against the Beaumont Independent School District.

Two years ago, the Southeast Texas Record reported on litigation filed by Brenda Narcisse, a Jefferson County resident who sued BISD and one of its bus drivers.

A second amended docket control order in the case was filed March 30, calling for a September trial setting.

The first docket control order was filed Jan. 7 and originally requested that the case be tried in May, court papers say.

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.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is presiding over the case.

Case No. E183-563
