GALVESTON - A lawsuit filed last March in response to an elderly man's death from injuries allegedly sustained in a fall at a Galveston movie theater was amended, according to recent court records.
Plaintiff Ilene Corr, the widow of the late Charles "Dick" Corr, revised her suit Oct. 8 to include their four children as co-complainants and list Galveston Island Cinema, LLC as a new defendant.
According to the suit, Charles Corr, 78, fell and injured his head at Galveston Premiere Cinema 11 on Feb. 10, 2012.
He was taken to the nearby University of Texas Medical Branch where he died from head trauma three days later, the original petition said.
His widow asserts Premiere Cinema Corp. and Galveston Premiere Cinema 11 Manager Rachel Vernon "knew or should have known of the condition on their premises" as well as "created the condition and it was foreseeable that someone could trip and fall."
In an original answer entered April 22, the defendants allege the incident was brought forth by the decedent’s own negligence.
Vernon was non-suited in early August.
A jury trial is scheduled for Apr. 14, 2014, at 9 a.m.
