ABC 13 interviews Randy Sorrels about the lawsuit Sorrels Law has filed on behalf of a man who was shot in the head at Cle Nightclub in Houston
Houston attorneys Randy Sorrels, Alexandra Farias-Sorrels, and Kyle Knizner of Sorrels Law, have filed suit against Club 2301, LLC, the owner of Clé Nightclub in Houston on behalf of Kendell Stewart and his two children, ages 6 and 8, after Kendell was shot in the head by another patron of Clé. The family seeks a temporary restraining order securing all video footage and evidence from the nightclub for May 30, 2021 and May 31, 2021.
Initial reports indicate that in the early morning of May 31, 2021, a dispute arose outside the club. After the dispute apparently dissipated, the participants entered Clé and one of them pulled a gun and began shooting inside. A Harris County off-duty sheriff fired back, killing the gunman. Mr. Stewart was shot in the head and rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital. When his family was first contacted, they were told Mr. Stewart had been killed. But several hours later, his family was surprised to learn Mr. Stewart was in fact not dead, but in critical condition.
“Recent history from Clé Nightclub reveals a pattern of concerning activity. The reports are troubling, and we hope to secure the video and witness statements through a temporary restraining order,” noted Randy Sorrels. Sorrels recently represented the son and Godson of former Houston Astros players Roger Clemens and Mike Capel against Concrete Cowboy and secured a $3.24 million dollar jury verdict when the two young men were assaulted. “We will investigate the club’s history in the hiring, vetting and training of the bouncers and security personnel. Also, we will look at the security policies and procedures employed by Clé to determine what level of security was provided.”
Mr. Stewart remains in critical condition at Memorial Hermann with a gunshot wound to his head. His family is hoping he will make some type of recovery from this devastating incident.
