Two Texas residents want the court to determine their ownership share in a piece of Jefferson County property.

Brenda Haymond Kyles and Latonya Wright filed a lawsuit Feb. 6 in Jefferson County District Court against Gale Mason and Gary Gordon Jr.

In their petition, both plaintiffs and the two defendants own a piece of real estate on Rockwell Street in Beaumont. The property is worth at least $30,000, according to the complaint.

Kyles, Wright and Gordon each own an undivided one-tenth interest in the property while Mason owns a seven-tenths interest in it, the suit states.

"The plaintiffs are informed and believe and so allege that the above-described and owned interests comprise the total ownership of the tract sought to be partitioned and that such tract is subject to no other claim," the complaint says.

In their complaint, Kyles and Wright seek a court order determining the share of each of the owners of the property, determining that the property is susceptible to petition, directing the issuance of a writ of petition and awarding costs, interest and other relief the court deems just.

Mel W. Shelander of Beaumont will be representing them.

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

Case No. E191-877
