Maria Ramos filed a lawsuit Feb. 11 in the Galveston County District Court against Mickey McClendon, citing strict liability and negligence.

Ramos claims the defendant failed to restrain the dogs and alleges they knew the dogs had a vicious propensity, according to the complaint.
She is seeking an undisclosed amount in damages, including punitive damages.
She is being represented in the case by attorney Michael G. Martinez.
