Port Arthur resident Jennifer McLain filed suit against Adelle Samora and fashion retailer Citi Trends on Nov. 30, 2011, in Jefferson County District Court for injuries she received while shopping for hair accessories.

Court records show that on Dec. 19 Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, signed off an agreed order of dismissal.

The order state the parties presented the order to court and that all claims have been resolved.

The suit alleged McLain was shopping at Citi Trends on Oct. 8, 2011. While looking at a rack filled with headbands, store employee Samora allegedly struck her in the head with a dolly carrying heavy boxes.

McLain asserted that she was focused on the headband rack and did not hear or see the dolly coming toward her.

She also maintained Samora admitted she was at fault afterwards and that she should have been paying attention to her path of travel, the suit states.

The suit alleged the defendants failed to warn McLain of the impending danger.

McLain was suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.
