Memorial business named in suit after alleged beating
A Memorial business owner is being sued over claims he failed to protect an employee from an alleged violent attack.
Bara Ma'ekhlayel filed a negligence lawsuit on July 3 in the Harris County District Court against Double Tree Hotels and Enterprise Limousine and Enterprise Valet Services, owned by Samir Kayyali of Memorial.
Ma'ekhlayel says on Dec. 19, 2010, a gang of men beat him with a blunt instrument while he worked as a valet for Enterprise Limousine and Enterprise Valet Services. The attack occurred because the defendants failed to provide adequate security, according to the brief.
Ma'ekhlayel is seeking damages and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Nicola Thompson Drake.
