HOUSTON — A California man is suing a land owner and Houston nightclub operators, alleging negligent hiring and supervision led to the plaintiff being beat up by a bouncer.
Kyle Krause of San Diego County filed a complaint Feb. 21 in Harris County District Court against 2602 Richmond LP, Vervet Management LLC and Club San Jacinto LLC, alleging they breached their duty to hire, train and/or retain competent employees.
According to the complaint, on April 11, 2015, Krause attended the defendants' nightclub Limelight. While attempting to exit, the suit says, the Limelight bouncer attacked and beat Krause up.
The lawsuit states Krause sustained serious bodily injuries that resulted in physical and mental pain, medical expenses and lost wages. The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide adequate security and protection to their patrons.
Krause seeks trial by jury, monetary relief between $100,000 and $$200,000 and all other general and special relief. He is represented by attorney Andrea Roth of Roth & Associates in Houston.
