Two people have filed suit against the Centreville bar and the patrons who they claim attacked them.
Amy and Ryan Morales claim they were visiting Mad Dogs Bar on Dec. 30 when defendants Brian Spry, Douglas Luksza, Trenton Schegel and Jenny Rambo attacked the couple.
Because of the incident, the Moraleses were severely injured, suffered severe and permanently disabling injuries and endured great pain and mental anguish, according to the complaint filed Sept. 30 in St. Clair County Circuit Court. In addition, the Moraleses lost wages, the suit states.
In addition to the people who attacked them, the couple blames Mad Dogs Bar for causing their injuries, saying it negligently failed to warn them that their health could be in danger, failed to ensure that the property was safe, failed to prevent the defendants from entering the property when they knew that they had been involved in violent altercations and failed to rescue the Morales from imminent danger.
In their complaint, the plaintiffs are seeking a judgment of more than $400,000, plus costs.
Charles J. Baricevic of Chatham and Baricevic in Swansea will be representing them.
St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-502.
