Michael Malloy filed the 800th civil suit in Madison County this year seeking damages in excess of $50,000 against Thomas Hurst and Mac's Timeout Lounge in Alton.
According to Malloy's Sept. 20 lawsuit, he and Hurst were thrown out of Mac's on Dec. 30, 2005. Afterwards, Hurst beat him with a baseball bat, without provocation, causing severe bodily and personal injuries, the suit claims.
Malloy alleges he suffered a skull fracture and other injuries to his head and face causing him to incur pain and suffering.
Malloy claims Mac's either gave or sold alcoholic beverages to Hurst causing him to become intoxicated enough to assault him with a baseball bat.
Malloy claims Mac's continued to allow Hurst to drink after he was intoxicated, failed to call the police knowing Hurst was belligerent and a danger, and kicked both of them out when the bar knew Hurst was a danger to him.
Malloy claims he has become disabled causing him to be unable to pursue is normal activities of life, loss of wages, and reasonable and necessary medical treatment and expenses.
Represented by Michael Glisson of Alton, Malloy is seeking damages in excess of $150,000, plus all costs of the suit.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Lola Maddox.
