Jury awards Liberty County boy $1.1

million for the loss of father

The Baytown Sun: April 24th, 2018

Baytown attorney, Craig Muessig, has announced that a Jefferson County Jury late last week awarded his client, 4-year-old Rayden Meadows of Tarkington, $1.1 million in damages for the loss of his father, Clinton Meadows.  

On Jan. 24, 2016, Clinton Meadows, 25, was changing his wife’s left front tire on the shoulder of Interstate 10 in Beaumont several hundred yards from the Laurel Avenue exit. While changing the tire, a Ford Escape driven by Kendrick McCloney, 29 of Beaumont, struck and killed Meadows, knocking him forward underneath his pickup truck which was parked in front of his wife’s vehicle.  

Meadows was pronounced dead approximately 40 minutes later at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Beaumont.

After a three-day trial, a Jefferson County Jury awarded Rayden, $550,000 for the past and future loss of the companionship and affection of his father and $550,000 for the past and future mental anguish for the loss of his father.  

“No amount of money can bring back his daddy, but this is the only thing we can do to obtain some semblance of justice,” Muessig said. 

 Muessig said the money would be placed in trust under the supervision of 172nd District Court Judge Donald Floyd and would be held in trust until Rayden becomes an adult at which time it will be gradually disbursed to him.  

 Muessig was hired by Rayden’s mother, Harlie Easley of Tarkington.

“It was a privilege to represent this beautiful child and a sacred trust that I did not take lightly,” Muessig said.
