An agreed take-nothing judgment has been entered in a lawsuit brought by Collin Sheldon, who sued the Beaumont nail salon Tic Tac Day Spa alleging she received a staph infection following her pedicure.

As previously reported, the suit was filed June 14, 2011, in Jefferson County District Court.

The judgment, entered Feb. 24, states that the parties have compromised and settled and that Sheldon shall recover nothing from the defendant.

The lawsuit alleged that on Jan. 22 Sheldon received a pedicure at the nail salon by an unnamed employee.

During the exfoliation treatment, Sheldon told the employee her feet were beginning to hurt. She was told the burning sensation was normal, the suit states.

"Following the pedicure, plaintiff's feet continued to hurt ... and had become red, swollen and oozing," the suit states. "Plaintiff went to her doctor, who diagnosed a staph infection."

Sheldon alleged the defendant negligently applied too much of the exfoliating chemical and then failed to take remedial action.

She was represented by Beaumont attorney Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell.

The nail salon was represented by Beaumont attorney Collin Shellenberger of Germer & Gertz.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, presided over the case.

Case No. A190-268
