A Gillespie woman is suing a Wilsonville woman and the owner of a bar in Gillespie for damages in excess of $50,000 for injuries she allegedly sustained when she was battered July 28 last year at the bar.
The alleged victim, Lori Spencer, names Bukurim Seferi, owner of the Black Diamond Bar and Grill on Springfield Road, and Tory Holman, the woman who assaulted her, as defendants. Also named as a defendant is a “Jane Doe,” an unidentified woman who allegedly held Spencer down as she was being battered by Holman.
Lirim Seferi is named as a respondent for discovery, presumably to shed light on the ownership of the bar where the incident happened and possibly assist in identifying the “Jane Doe” allegedly involved in the assault. The suit notes that Seferi holds a license for gaming devices at the bar, but the Secretary of State has no corporate record confirming Seferi’s ownership of the bar.
Count I of the suit, brought under provisions of the state’s Dramshop Act, alleges that Seferi served Holman and the unidentified woman alcoholic liquor at the bar and that the women assaulted Spencer as a result of being intoxicated.
Count II against Holman and “Jane Doe” alleges that Spencer entered the bar and, upon seeing Holman at the bar, turned to leave. As Spencer turned to leave, Holman allegedly shouted something to the effect of “Hell no, bitch,” according to the suit. Holman then allegedly jumped from her bar stool and began to punch Spencer in the face. “Jane Doe” allegedly joined the attack, holding Spencer down while Holman continued to punch and choke her until Kevin Chad Holman pulled Holman off Spencer and Spencer was able to escape.
The suit claims Spencer sustained injuries to various parts of her body, suffered and will continue to suffer pain, incurred medical expenses for treatment of her injuries and lost sums of money she otherwise would have received as wages or earnings. Spencer seeks an unspecified judgment in excess of $50,000.
