CHARLESTON -- A man is suing Corral Bar & Grill after he was attacked by patrons and/or employees when he was leaving the premises.

Russell B. Sears is doing business as Corral Bar & Grill, LLC.

On July 11, 2010, Chadwic Pauley was on the defendant's premises as a paying customer, according to a complaint filed July 6 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Pauley claims upon attempting to leave the premises, he was attacked by patrons and/or employees of the defendant.

The defendant failed to provide bouncers or any other security to aid Pauley as he was being brutally attacked outside the door of the establishment by a patron and/or employee whom they had been serving alcohol for hours, according to the suit.

Pauley claims the beating continued by the intoxicated patrons and/or employees of the defendant as he was dragged onto Coonskin Drive, where he was repeatedly kicked and stomped until he lost consciousness.

The defendant owed a duty to Pauley to provide a safe environment both inside and outside of its premises and failed to do so, according to the suit.

Pauley claims as a result of the defendant's negligence, he received serious and permanent injuries and suffered great pain of body and mind.

The defendant's actions also caused Pauley to suffer a loss of enjoyment of life and caused him to be unable to perform his job-related duties, according to the suit.

Pauley is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by Shannon M. Bland.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 12-C-1266
