HOUSTON – Papa John’s USA, Inc. and ZTF Enterprise, Inc. face a lawsuit from a customer who alleges he was assaulted by one of their employees two years ago, according to recent Harris County District Court records.
In court documents filed on Aug. 11 in the Harris County 133rd District Court, Henry I. Campbell tags Eulojio E. Macias as the worker who assailed him at the Papa John’s restaurant located at 10741 N. Fwy. on Aug. 11, 2016.
Macias served as a delivery driver to Campbell’s home and arrived at the residence a few items short, the suit says. It adds that Campbell was prompted to go to the eatery when Macias failed to return with his correct food order.
The original petition further explains that the plaintiff was talking to the manager when “Macias ran from out of the back of the pizzeria and begin to viciously beat (him) while screaming: ‘you are trying to get me fired…’”
Campbell claims the attack left him with injuries to his neck, back, shoulder, and hip. He supposedly was required to undergo surgery and “various evasive” medical treatments as part of his recovery.
Macias and an unidentified individual are co-defendants in the litigation.
Consequently, Campbell seeks unspecified monetary damages.
Adjua Umoja-Justice of The Justice Law Firm in Houston is representing the plaintiff.
