A final take-nothing judgment has been entered in litigation brought by Vivian Anders and her husband.

The couple sued Heritage Funeral Home of Memorial Gardens, alleging the business failed to remove a tripping hazard on its premises.

As previously reported, the suit was filed on Aug. 31, 2011, in Jefferson County District Court and also named James Hauck Jr. as a defendant.

Court records show the judgment was entered on Aug. 29 and states the parties agreed to the judgment, which dismisses the defendants with prejudice.

The lawsuit alleged that on Nov. 2, 2010, Vivian tripped on the sidewalk near the funeral home.

The suit does not state how she tripped and alleges that her fall was caused by a preventable dangerous condition.

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

Her husband was seeking loss of consortium damages.

Houston attorney Wilton Chalker represented them.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, presided over the case.

Case No. B190-758
