Kyle Stephens, individually and as next friend of C.S., a minor filed a complaint on Nov. 20, 2017, in the Harris County District Court against Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 23, 2016, minor plaintiff was injured at defendant's Friendswood store by an improperly secured weight bar that hit her in the head and back.
