A&A Super Toters has been non-suited from litigation brought by Karen Davis, who sued the company claiming one of its employees, who was allegedly under the influence, caused an automobile collision.

As previously reported, the suit was filed Feb. 4 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that on May 23 Davis filed a motion for non-suit with prejudice, stating she no longer wished to pursue her claims against A&A. 

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, granted the motion the following day, court papers say.

According to the lawsuit, on March 9, 2012, Davis was a passenger in a truck being driven by Augusta Simon Sr., who is now deceased and was allegedly under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time.

The suit stated Simon negligently caused a distraction and failed to drive in a single lane, causing him to lose control, slid counter clockwise, roll to the left side of the road and finally crash upside down.

Simon was in the course and scope of his employment with A&A at the time of the incident.

The suit alleged the company should have known he was an incompetent driver.

On top of exemplary damages, the plaintiff was suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.

Houston attorney E.J. Anakani represents her.

Case No. B193-887
