GALVESTON – A Texas City couple is alleged to have allowed their dog to roam freely and failed to control it to keep it from biting a minor.

Stephanie Potter, individually and as next friend of PF, filed a complaint on June 27 in the Galveston County District Court against Shane Scott, Alicia Scott and MKG4Investments LLC alleging negligence and premises liability.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 1, 2017, PF was injured at defendant MKG4Investments' property when PF was bitten by Alicia and Shane Scott’s loose dog multiple times. The suit states PF suffered injuries that required medical care and treatment and caused pain, disfigurement and mental anguish. 

The plaintiff holds Shane Scott, Alicia Scott and MKG4Investments LLC responsible because the Scotts allegedly failed to control the dog and allowed it to roam freely.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks more than $200,000 but less than $1 million in damages and such other and further relief to which plaintiff may be entitled. The plaintiff is represented by Joshua P. Davis and Katherine Ray of Davis Law Group in Houston.
