A notice of non-suit has been filed in a suit brought by Beaumont resident Felicia Ceaser, who sued Supercuts and Handy Husband -- the installers of a cabinet, which she claims, fell on her while retrieving a towel.

As previously reported, the suit was filed July 22 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that on Oct. 3 Ceaser filed a notice of non-suit, notifying the court of her dismissal of the defendants with prejudice from her cause of action.

The notice states that matters in controversy have been settled and compromised.

According to the lawsuit, on Aug. 19, 2010, Ceaser was in the course and scope of her employment with Supercuts. She was retrieving a towel from a cabinet when it fell and landed on top of her.

The suit faults Supercuts for negligently failing to provide a safe workplace and also blames Handy Husband for negligently installing the cabinet.

She was suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Beaumont attorney Tom Oxford of the Waldman Smallwood law firm represented her.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, presided over the case.

Case No. D190-552
