EDWARDSVILLE — A man is suing Ray Herrin Corp., doing business as The Corner Bar, Ray Herrin Corp., doing business as R&L Sports Bar, and Kenneth and Lori Herrin, bar operators, citing alleged unlawful sale of liquor to an intoxicated person.
Clifford Mathis filed a complaint on June 1 in Madison County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they allegedly sold liquor to Scott J. Kirsch.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on June 9, 2015, while he was attempting to cross Haller Street near its intersection with Lorena in Wood River, he was struck by a motor vehicle being driven by Scott Kirsch, causing him injuries to his leg, neck and head. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because prior to the incident, the defendants through their employees or agents allegedly gave or sold intoxicating liquors to Kirsch, which caused him to become intoxicated.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against each defendant for a sum in excess of $50,000, plus costs of this suit. He is represented by Samuel A. Mormino, Jr. of Mormino, Velloff & Snider PC in Alton.
