Madison County Circuit Judge Andreas Matoesian called for a case management conference in a lawsuit involving an Edwardsville police officer suing Big Daddy’s and his alleged attackers.
Filed Aug. 21, the order resets the case for further case management conference in 90 days.
Officer Andrew J. Feller and his wife, Kimberly Feller, filed a lawsuit on April 29 in Madison County Circuit Court against BubbaSliceBone, Inc., also known as Big Daddy’s Edwardsville, Steven J. Siebert, Timothy J. Bauer, James J. Sinovic Jr., Arthur Risavy and Traig Henson.
Feller claims he was called to Big Daddy’s while on duty to break up an altercation in the parking lot.
According to the complaint, Henson allegedly became intoxicated in the bar and attacked Feller. He struck Feller and violently held onto his back, torso, knee and other musculature, the suit claims.
Feller became sick, sore, lame and disordered; experienced pain and suffering; and acquired medical expenses due to the incident, the complaint claims.
Siebert, Bauer and Sinovic were named as defendants because they own Big Daddy’s, where Feller claims he was attacked. Risavy was named as a defendant because he leased the land to the bar owners.
Big Daddy’s bar was named as a defendant for allegedly allowing visitors to become intoxicated and disorderly and failed to control its guests.
D. Jeffrey Ezra of Ezra and Associates in Collinsville represents the plaintiffs.
