EDWARDSVILLE — A customer claims he was injured when he tripped on a broken wooden post at Brazz Monkee.
Robert Marshall filed a complaint on March 1 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Nightlife Promotions LLC, doing business as Brazz Monkee, and Betty Adams, alleging they breached their duties to exercise ordinary care in maintaining their business premises.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 1, 2016, he was a customer at the Brazz Monkee bar when he tripped and fell over a broken wooden post.
