After more than a year of litigation, longtime Houston restaurant Brennan’s has reached a settlement in a lawsuit filed in 2019 by an attorney who alleged that a former Brennan’s employee sexually assaulted her.
The parties came to an undisclosed settlement agreement this week, and the case has officially been dismissed in the Harris County District Court following a motion from the plaintiff. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed in court records, but Eater has reached out to the plaintiff’s attorney for more information on the outcome of the lawsuit.
The suit, filed in January 2019 by an anonymous plaintiff initially identified as Jane Doe, alleged that former Brennan’s bartender Sean Kerrigan drugged the plaintiff while she dined at the restaurant, then took Jane Doe to her home and repeatedly assaulted her over the course of several hours. The suit also alleges that Kerrigan stole prescription drugs and other items from her.
