General court 4

Townhouse Motel denies liability in a guest’s suit alleging she was injured when plaster fell on her while she was in the shower.

Dana J. Foster filed the complaint on Nov. 1 against Townhouse Motel Corporation.

In her complaint, Foster alleges she was a guest at the motel on March 14, 2016, and was an occupant of a rented room. While in the shower in her room, Foster claims large pieces of plaster fell on her, causing her to suffer injuries and damages.

Foster alleges Townhouse Motel failed to keep the shower area in a safe condition, negligently allowed the shower area to remain in an unsafe condition, failed to replace or repair the ceiling of the shower area and breached its duty to maintain the motel premises in a reasonably safe condition.

Townhouse Motel answered the complaint on Jan. 6 through attorney David Hesi of the Law Offices of Bingley Hart & Hesi in St. Louis.

The defendant denied liability and demanded a trial by jury.

Chief Judge Andrew Gleeson scheduled a status conference for Feb. 14 at 9 a.m.

Foster seeks more than $50,000 for her injuries.

She is represented by Philip R. Rice of Rice Law Offices Ltd. in Belleville.
