Personal injury plaintiff seeks to quash her own deposition

Last February, Texas HCS employee Darla Lynn Odom filed suit against her employer, alleging the company negligently instructed her to move a table even after she expressed concerns that she might injure herself.

Court records show that on July 10 Odom filed a motion to quash her own deposition.

Defendant HCS set the deposition for Aug. 7.

However, the motion states the slated time conflicts with Odom's attorney's schedule.

Beaumont attorney John Werner of Reaud, Morgan & Quinn represents her.

The suit states that Odom was employed as a Texas HCS supervisor when she "sustained bodily injuries while moving a table for" the company.

"Plaintiff expressed concerns about possible injury from moving the table, but was told to move the table anyway," the suit states, adding that Texas HCS negligently failed to coordinate the work so that it would be performed in a safe manner.

The suit does not state when the incident occurred or what type of injuries Odom allegedly sustained.

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

Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B189-364
