Cypress woman sues carnival owner over broken nose
A Cypress woman is suing a League City carnival owner after, she says, she broke her nose at a local fair.
Cypress resident Ashley Stanley filed a lawsuit on Jan. 11 in Harris County District Court against League City resident James Reed, Jr., doing business as Reed Exposition Midways, and others, citing negligence.
Stanley says on April 1, 2010, she sustained injuries while exiting Genesis, a ride at the defendant’s carnival, located in a parking lot near the intersection of Barker Cypress and FM 529.
According to the brief, a shoulder restraint on the ride, suddenly and without warning, slammed into her face and broke her nose.
Stanley is seeking damages and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Stewart Guss.
