Last June, the Southeast Texas Record reported that Sharon Litchfield sued Logan's Roadhouse after she tripped over the foot of an employee while exiting restaurant.

Four months later, a notice of non-suit was filed on Oct. 3, stating that Litchfield no longer wishes to pursue her claim, court records show.

Litchfield filed suit against Logan's Roadhouse and three of its employees, Jeremy Durgin, Kristine Brand and Byron Bluitt, on June 7 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on May 3, 2010, Litchfield was exiting the restaurant through the waiting area when "Durgin stepped backwards tripping her with his foot, causing her to fall to the floor."

The suit alleged that the Logan's Roadhouse employees failed to lookout for the safety of patrons, acted carelessly and failed to pay attention to their surroundings.

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

The Law Offices of Jason Cansler in Beaumont represented her.

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

Case No. D190-225
