Alleging Luby's should have painted the parking stop she tripped over nearly three years ago, Elaine Bromley has filed suit against the popular eatery.

The suit was filed Dec. 21 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on April 14, 2009, Bromley was dining at the Port Arthur Luby's. As she was leaving the restaurant, she tripped and fell "over an unmarked, unpainted parking stop."

In her suit, Bromley alleges Luby's owed her a duty to safeguard against the unreasonably dangerous condition and warn her of the unmarked parking stop's existence.

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

Beaumont attorney Jonathan Juhan represents her.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E191-555
