A motion to retain a lawsuit against the city of Beaumont over an employee's automobile collision has been granted.

The case of Rashee Guillory vs. the city of Beaumont, filed in November 2010, had been placed on the try or dismiss docket for July.

Court records show that on July 6 Guillory filed a motion to retain, asserting the failure to announce at docket call was the result of a clerical error and not intentional.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, granted the motion on July 11, court records show.

In her suit, Guillory claims she was driving south in the 3500 block of Concord Road on Aug. 24, 2010, when Beaumont employee Michael Wayne Shilo failed to keep a proper lookout and struck the driver's side of her vehicle.

The suit alleges Shilo negligently drove too fast, failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply his brakes and drove negligently and inattentively.

Guillory is seeking a judgment in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and other relief the court deems just.

Clay Dugas and Mike Jacobellis of Beaumont represent her.

Case No. E188-778
