Bar remains in drunk-driving suit after other defendants dismissed
A partial take-nothing judgment has been entered in a personal injury lawsuit accusing an area man of driving while intoxicated.
Laretta Hill filed suit against Karlon Travis Bowen, Kandace Bowen, Mid-County Ventures and Whiskey River on April 8 in Jefferson County District Court.
The judgment was entered Sept. 28 and states that Hill and Karlon Bowen have settled their claims, dismissing him with prejudice.
Court records show that Kandace Bowen was also non-suited by Hill that same day.
Hill still has pending claims against Mid-County Ventures and Whiskey River.
In her suit, Hill claims she was riding in a vehicle driven by Bowen traveling east on Interstate 10 when Bowen took the exit ramp at milepost 856 and struck the concrete crash pad.
Hill claims she sustained injuries, physical impairment, disfigurement, extreme physical and mental pain and suffering and anguish, the suit states. In addition, she incurred medical costs, the complaint says.
Brian D. Sutton and Stephanie H. Harris of Sutton and Jacobs in Beaumont represent her.
Houston attorney Glenn Fahl represented Bowen.
The case is assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.
Case No. D189-736
