A lawsuit brought by a Galveston County woman alleging domestic violence and vandalism has been dismissed.

Heather Hughes Harris filed a lawsuit June 8 in Galveston County District Court against Ender Holland, also known as Dustin Chance Holland, and Hannah Scott, alleging property damage and harassment beginning in November 2014.

Three months later, the parties filed notices of non-suits, court records show.

On Sept. 21 the presiding judge dismissed the defendants with prejudice.

According to the complaint, on Nov. 15, 2014, Harris and Holland ceased living together and the defendants, singly and in combination, have engaged in acts of harassment and property damage by destroying personal items belonging to Hughes Harris that she was forced to leave behind when fleeing their living quarters due to domestic violence incidents.

The suit alleged conversion of property, and Hughes Harris complains Holland is gifting her possessions to Scott, his new partner. The suit specifically states the defendants are actively defacing the property by carving their initials into wooden surfaces without the plaintiff's consent.

Defendant Ender Holland filed an Original Counterclaim against Plaintiff, Heather Harris Hughes, on Aug. 7, asserting defamation and false allegation.

Hughes Harris sought an injunction, attorney fees, expenses and costs.

Bret Griffin of The Law Firm of Bret Griffin in Houston represents her.
