Alleging a pit bull attacked him and his dogs, Glen Marby has filed suit against the offending dog’s owner, Dustin Driskell. 

The suit was filed April 8 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on March 2 Marby was out walking his two dogs when a pit bull emerged from an open-gate pen on Driskell’s property.

During the attack, Marby attempted to separate his dogs from the pit bull when the dog started to attack him, causing him to fall on the street where the attack continued.

“Additionally, as a result of the attack, plaintiff suffered the humiliation of being knocked to the ground and seeing his dogs, which were much smaller … being attacked and suffering injuries by the attacking dog of the defendant,” the suit states.

The suit accuses the defendant of failing to maintain his dog in such a way to keep it from attacking the plaintiff and members of the general public.

The plaintiff is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Port Arthur attorney Carl Parker represents him.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B194-228
