GRETNA – An arms dealer company is suing a Harahan restaurant after one of its founders was allegedly disabled in a slip and fall, which led to the company failing.

American Rebel Arms LLC filed suit against New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Company in the 24th Judicial District Court on April 9.

American Rebel Arms claims its founder Deborah Norred, who invested her life savings of $100,000 to start the company, was severely injured in a slip and fall at the New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Company located at 1005 S. Clearview Parkway in Harahan. The plaintiff alleges that Norred’s injuries were severe enough that she was disabled and was not able to work full-time in the American Rebel Arms store that was set to open. American Rebel Arms asserts due to Norred’s injuries the business was ultimately unable to operate and open.

The defendant is accused of failing to properly keep the premises free of hazards, failing to properly maintain the floors, failing to properly prevent and remove a liquid substance on the floor and failing to warn patrons of the hazard.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for the plaintiff’s losses.

American Rebel Arms is represented by A.J. Robert Jr. of the New Orleans-based Law Office of A.J. Robert Jr.

The case has been assigned to Division M Judge Henry G. Sullivan Jr.

Case no. 737-312.
