EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County man is suing an Edwardsville bar and its owners, alleging they negligently failed to prevent an assault.

Richard C. Munsterman filed a lawsuit Aug. 8 the Madison County Circuit Court against Big Daddy's, Arthur Risavy, Steven J. Siebert, Timothy M. Bauer, James J. Sinovic, Jr and Bubbaslicebone Inc. doing business as Big Daddy's Edwardsville, alleging that they violated the Dram Shop Act.

According to the complaint, on Oct. 22, 2015, Munsterman was at Big Daddy's when intoxicated individuals assaulted him. The suit says this assault caused severe injuries to the plaintiff's jaw and vertebrae that required medical treatment and expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants sold alcoholic beverages to patrons that caused them to become intoxicated and assault Munsterman.

Munsterman seeks a trial by jury, judgement against each defendant of more than $50,000, plus costs of suit. He is represented by attorneys Edward W. Unsell and Fred Patrick Schumann of Unsell & Schuman in East Alton.
