St. Clair County Circuit Judge Robert LeChien scheduled a case management conference for a lawsuit in which a motorist accused the boy he struck on a bicycle of negligence.
The case management conference is set for June 30 at 9:30 a.m.
Ty Lampley through his mother, Montrice Lampley, filed the lawsuit on Nov. 5 against Timothy Moore.
According to the complaint, Lampley alleges he was riding his bicycle across North Belt West at its intersection with North 45th Street in Belleville on June 23, 2013, when Moore, who was driving east, struck him.
As a result of the collision, Lampley claims he suffered disability and disfigurement, endured great physical pain and mental anguish and lost his normal life. He also incurred medical costs and experienced a seriously diminished earning capacity, the suit states.
Lampley blames Moore for causing the collision, saying he negligently failed to yield to a pedestrian, failed to properly apply his brakes, failed to sound his horn, failed to keep a vigilant lookout for pedestrians, failed to have his vehicle under proper control and failed to exercise due care.
Lampley seeks a judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs.
Moore is represented by Amy M. Simkins of the Law Offices of Rouse and Cary in St. Louis. He requests a trial by jury.
The plaintiffs are represented by Matthew J. Marlen of Matthew J. Marlen, P.C., in Belleville.
