Space Center Houston sued over fall
A woman is suing Space Center Houston after, she says, an unsecure safety net thwarted her safe landing.
Marilee Timbrooks filed a lawsuit on Feb. 10 in the Harris County District Court against Manned Space Flight Education Foundation, alleging negligence.
Timbrooks says that on June 17, 2009, she suffered injuries and embarrassment while in an inflatable obstacle course with her 2-year-old son at Space Center Houston. According to the brief, the course’s safety net was left unsecured, so Timbrooks bounced out onto the ground when she fell, sustaining severe and debilitating injuries.
Timbrooks is seeking damages and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Adam Criaco.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-08890.
