A woman has filed a personal injury suit claiming that she incurred disability at bar in Wood River, Illinois after she was allegedly attacked by a man for no reason.
On February 24, Dana L. McDonough filed suit in Illinois’ Madison County Circuit Court naming A&G Front St. Inc., doing business as Rumor’s Bar and Grill, Gary Layton, and George H. Rhodes as defendants.
According to McDonough, Rhodes became intoxicated on April 15 and punched, struck, and otherwise battered her.
McDonough claims the incident caused her to sustain serious and permanent bodily injury, experience pain and suffering, a loss of wages, and a loss of ability to pursue her natural pursuits, and incur medical expenses.
The suit also names Layton, the owner of the bar, and Rumor’s as defendants under the Illinois Dram Shop Act.
McDonough seeks damages in excess of $150,000, plus costs, from the three-count suit.
