GALVESTON – An alleged altercation at a Galveston Subway restaurant last year has prompted a local woman to initiate legal action.
Emily Heater’s lawsuit against VKC I, LLP, doing business as Subway, claims Heater and her daughter, Emily, were customers at the defendant’s eatery on 2521 Broadway on Sept. 30, 2016, when a fight broke out between an on-duty employee and another woman who had entered the store.
The suit, filed Oct. 18 in the Galveston County Court at Law No. 2, further states that the plaintiff and her daughter could not vacate the premises because the employee locked the front door before the subject event.
According to the original petition, Heater was assaulted in the midst of the fight.
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
She is represented by attorneys S. Benjamin Shabot, Timothy A. Beeton, and Stakely McConnell of the law firm Simpson, Beeton, Shabot & McConnell LLC in Galveston.
