GALVESTON – A Louisiana man has filed a lawsuit as a result
of injuries he allegedly suffered last year while watching a cheerleading
competition at a local convention center.
In court documents filed Jan. 9 in the Galveston District of
the Southern District of Texas, Terrebonne Parish resident Cameron Dennis
claims that he sustained injuries to both ankles as he attempted to descend an
aisle separating portable bleachers in which he had a seat for the “2016 Cash
Bash” on Jan. 5, 2016.
“He suddenly lost his balance and was thrown to the floor on
the bleacher risers,” the complaint says.
It further shows that Dennis’s left foot “had slipped into a
gap at the joint between two sections of the sections of the portable bleachers
and become lodged there.”
Per the suit, Moody Gardens, Inc. owned and operated the
convention center which hosted the competition. Said competition was
purportedly under the auspices of Varsity Brands, LLC, doing business as
American Cheer Power, while it is asserted that Specialty Supply &
Installation, LLC assembled the bleachers.
Dennis says that he required surgery and was unable to work
as a CDL driver.
A jury trial is requested.
Attorney Joseph C. Bartels of The Law Offices of Joseph C.
Bartels in New Orleans is representing the complainant.
