Judge's order absolves Santa Fe woman sued over dog attack

GALVESTON - A late 2012 lawsuit over a dog attack came to a close in favor of the defendant, according to recent court records.

Galveston County 10th District Court Judge Kerry L. Neves issued an order Oct. 18 ruling a judgment "will be rendered" for Debra Wyatt.

The move comes on the heels of a bench trial in which Wyatt and plaintiff Deanna Wright were present.

As previously reported, Wright sued Wyatt on Nov. 30, 2012, after Wyatt's dogs attacked her near the defendant's Santa Fe home on Nov. 12, 2011.

Wright claimed the group of canines were left unsupervised and without leashes, asserting the dogs knocked her to the ground and inflicted damage to her general body.

Wyatt formerly countered the allegations earlier this year.

Said order requires Wyatt's counsel to "prepare and circulate a proposed judgment to be submitted to the court by Nov. 15."

A proposed final judgment order submitted Oct. 24 states that Wright take nothing and all court costs are adjudged against her.

Attorney Zandra Anderson of Houston represented Wyatt.

Case No. 12-CV-2976
