Accused Tech Terrace residents say they want a jury trial

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The owners of an alleged party house in the Tech Terrace neighborhood have requested a jury trial.

The trouble began in February when police say Bailee Barrett, 19, attacked a woman outside her home in the 3200 block of 22nd Street. The victim, Sherry Grusendorf, filed suit against Holden Jacoby and his parents, who own the home across the street.

The Jacobys' attorneys have said the family is not to blame for Barrett's actions. And in a response to the court, the Jacobys denied all of Grusendorf's allegations. They also say her complaint is too vague, and therefore makes them unable to prepare a proper defense.

The Jacobys response also indicates that Grusendorf's own actions may have contributed to the incident that night, including taking flash pictures of strangers in their cars - not on Grusendorf's property. They say her lawsuit is groundless, filed for the sole purpose of harassment. The Jacobys want the suit dismissed, and they want Grusendorf to cover their legal expenses.
