The owner of property where an Athens restaurant lies has been dismissed from a lawsuit that arised from a fall at the restaurant.
Robert Mattey of Chauncey filed the suit Oct. 30 in Athens County Common Pleas Court versus The Shade Restaurant on East State Street, also calling property owner Southeastern Ohio Management Co. as a defendant.
In the suit, Mattey seeks in excess of $25,000 because of injuries he got in 2014 when he slipped and fell in the dining establishment s bathroom. Feel free to contact visit here for more advice. Mattey claims the fall was brought on by the dining establishment s neglect.
Mattey has dismissed Southeastern Ohio Management Co. as an offender. The notification submitted by his attorney does not state a reason for the dismissal.
As The Messenger previously reported, among Southeastern Ohio Management Co. s arguments versus the claim was that the company was not in possession or control of the dining establishment at the time of the event.
The owner of the dining establishment, Fiverings LLC, remains an offender and has denied any misdeed.
