GALVESTON - A local district judge has issued orders for substitute service into a Kemah homeowners association's lawsuit against one of its directors, recent court records show.
Galveston County 122nd District Court Judge John Ellisor last week granted the orders in favor of the Kemah Village Property Owners Inc.'s motions targeting Donald Barras and Tyler Barras.
Donald Barras is the father of Jerry Barras, whom the homeowners association is suing for enjoying "unchecked control of every aspect of Kemah Village", and Tyler Barras is the latter's son.
Kemah Village asserts the men, along with a few of Jerry Barras's business interests, benefitted from purported financial wrongdoing attributed to Jerry Barras in litigation launched last month.
Jerry Barras's misdeeds, which the plaintiff claims the director tried to cover by blocking access to books and records, were discovered over the summer of 2012, according to the original petition.
The complainant explains that Tyler Barras was "no less than six" times served to no avail while Donald Barras was unsuccessfully served "no less than nine" times last month.
The motion against Tyler Barras shows a process server spoke to Jerry Barras at the former's residence in question twice while the one against Donald Barras states he apparently was not home though his vehicle was seen in the driveway of his house.
Attorney Andrew K. Meade with Hawash Meade Gaston Neese and Cicack LLP in Houston is representing the plaintiff.
Case No. 13-CV-0038
