Alleging Star Bar employees should have escorted him off premises in a "safe manner," Cleburne resident Jesus Ramirez has filed suit against the popular nightspot's owners, Nimitz & Pena Business Ventures.

The suit, filed Jan. 11 in Jefferson County District Court, alleges that on Oct. 27 Ramirez was at the Crockett Street bar when he "sustained personal injuries due to the negligence of the defendant."

In his suit, Ramirez fails to say how he was injured but does allege Star Bar failed to properly train and supervise its employees and instruct them on how to escort him from the premises in a safe manner.

He is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Attorney Chris Portner of the Beaumont law firm Portner Bond represents him.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B191-653
