GRETNA – A sports bar is being sued by a customer who claims it is partially at fault after he was shot by another customer in their parking lot.
Nolan Noble filed suit against an unknown man who shot him, his unknown insurance company, The Huey Sports Bar & Grill and their insurer in the 24th Judicial District Court on July 9.
Noble alleges he was a customer at The Huey Sports Bar & Grill located at 1200 Bridge City Ave. in Bridge City when an unknown bar patron approached him and bumped into him. The plaintiff asserts that after the incident he quickly left the establishment and was shot by the man in the leg. Noble contends he sustained severe personal injuries in the incident.
The defendant is accused of failing to properly own and manage a business, failing to hire security personnel, providing negligent security for patrons, failing to prevent patrons from carrying weapons into the bar, failing to observe the shooter was armed, failing to remove the shooter from the premises and failing to exercise due care under the circumstances.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical and medication expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, psychological damage and emotional distress.
Noble is represented by attorney Fred R. DeFrancesch of LaPlace.
The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Stephen D. Enright Jr.
Case no. 740-195.
