Woman Beaten At Cracker Barrel Filing A Lawsuit
Tashawnea Yeasha Hill, the woman that was beaten to the ground in front of her 7-year-old daughter at a Cracker Barrel is filing a lawsuit.
As previously reported, the army reservist confirmed that she was punched and kicked by Troy Dale West Jr. on Sept. 9, 2009, after she told him he almost hit her daughter with the restaurant door.
Hill also told police that West yelled racial slurs while he beat her as her child watched in horror.
West was previously facing a maximum of 44 years in prison before a plea deal ended his trial with a 6-month sentence.
He was later released in December 2010 after serving only 43 days. (SMH!!!!)
Now Hill is firing back with a lawsuit aimed at not only her attacker, but at the restaurant chain where the incident occured.
According to The AJC, she’s asking for a jury trial in a lawsuit filed Friday in Clayton County State Court.
Hill claims she has endured “immense and intense physical and emotional pain and suffering” in the suit, which seeks unspecified damages.
A Cracker Barrel spokesman told The AJC that “This never had anything to do with Cracker Barrel” and contends that a restaurant manager put himself in harm’s way to save Hill.
In her lawsuit however, Hill claims that the manager did not help her, and that two restaurant employees “observed the incident as it was taking place and failed to exercise ordinary care to protect the plaintiffs.”
Smh…hopefully Tashawnea gets her past due in court although I’m sure no amount of money can make up the emotional suffering she and her daughter had to endure.
