Neighbors ordered to cease and desist in parking dispute

By David Yates | Dec 6, 2012

A permanent injunction has been entered in suit between neighbors feuding over parking spots.

As previously reported, Doak Procter III and Laura Wright filed a lawsuit and application for injunctive relief against Jimmy, Kirk, Lacy and Keri Hampton on May 3 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show a final judgment was entered in the case on Aug. 15, stating that the parties announced to the court that the matter had been settled.

The judgment orders the defendants to cease and desist from interfering with the plaintiffs’ right to privacy and seclusion.

According to the original petition, Wright and the Hamptons reside in a condominium complex in Beaumont. On March 31, Wright had company over for dinner and the Hamptons asked that the company move their cars, which Wright claims were not illegally parked.

From there, the matter escalated, leading the Hamptons to allegedly stalk and harass Wright and Procter.

“Plaintiffs also found a dead bird and flower that had been systematically placed on the windshield of Wright’s family member’s car after a recent dinner, believed to be the acts of defendants as some form of intimidation,” the suit states.

In their suit, the plaintiffs alleged the Hamptons also threw objects over Wright’s fence that sickened her dog.

John Pat Parsons of the Beaumont law firm Lindsay Lindsay Parsons represents the plaintiffs.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B192-401
