GRETNA – A woman is being sued by a judicial process server who claims she violently attacked him when he served her with Louisiana workers’ compensation legal paperwork.
David Cook filed suit against F. Wells Transportation LLC and Inell S. Wells in the 24th Judicial District Court on May 14.
Cook contends that on May 20, 2014 he went to Wells’ residence at 18 W. 24th St. in Kenner to serve Wells’ husband and F. Wells Transportation with legal paperwork regarding a workers’ compensation claim. The plaintiff asserts that when he attempted to serve Wells with the paperwork she physically attacked him, striking him in the chest and pushing him backward causing him to fall and strike his butt on the floor and his back on a railing. Cook alleges that after the attack he attempted to leave the premises and was followed by Wells and several other people to his car. The plaintiff contends he was injured in the incident for which he has had to seek medical care.
The defendant is accused of intentionally causing physical harm and violation of state law.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for physical pain and suffering, emotional distress and medical expenses.
Cook is represented by attorney Joseph G. Albe of New Orleans.
The case has been assigned to Division B Judge Cornelius E. Regan.
Case no. 749-716.
