HOUSTON – A Harris County woman has brought a lawsuit
against the Hobby Center of the Performing Arts regarding an alleged assault last
year of a young visitor by one of its employees.
In court papers filed Apr. 5 in the Harris County 334th
District Court, Kamilah Sage claims she and Madison Hornsby participated on a
field trip to the theater on Oct. 28, 2016 when the employee, a female,
purportedly mistreated Madison and her classmates.
Sage explains that she and the students used the facilities
during a show, to which the unidentified worker expressed anger as the group
returned to the theater. The employee then struck Madison in the face, the
original petition says.
It further asserts that the girl suffered extreme,
degrading, and permanent physical and emotional injuries as a result of the
subject event, stating she did not provoke the usherette.
Jane Doe joins her employer as a co-respondent in the case.
Consequently, Sage and the minor seek unspecified monetary
damages and a jury trial.
They are represented by attorneys Matthew M. Marzak and
Maverick J. Ray of the law firm Maverick Ray & Associates in Houston.
