Personal injury lawyer assaulted in Downtown, Grand Forks reports TheBarberLawFirm.com
Plano, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2012 -- Three out-of-state laborers are being charged with beating a Grand Forks man unconscious.
The incident took place in downtown after a bar closing on Saturday morning. The three men stole the victim’s iPhone. The victim was a personal injury lawyer, and the suspects are now likely to face some serious charges.
“Absolutely,” said the attorney and victim about whether he plans to sue the three men. The three alleged attackers appeared in state district court Monday on felony charges. “I’m already working on it.”
The attorney and his wife have asked to maintain their confidentiality, and rightly so, as they are concerned that the three men might return the charges with further violence.
“That would be a big mistake,” the lawyer said, but pointed out: “These guys are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.”
According to the attorney, when the incident occurred he heard Jason Gore, 27, James Costello, 35, and Alexander Forrest, 26, yelling and throwing bottles while they urinated on a building and a parked car. It was about 2 a.m. Saturday on the 200 block of Third Street in the downtown area.
The attorney says he confronted the men and while he was talking to Gore, the other two snuck up behind him. He added that Costello and Forrest punched him in the face, choked him, went through his pockets, stole his iPhone and kicked him into unconsciousness.
The lawyer’s wife said she witnessed part of the incident. The three men made a court appearance at the hearing which was televised from the Grand Forks County jail. “I plan to sue them for pain and suffering and emotional distress,” he said. “But a judgment can follow them around for the next 20 years, too, and if they don’t pay restitution, they go back to jail.”
