Parents settled lawsuit against Hooters Restaurant

Posted: Updated:

The parents of a drunk driving victim have settled their civil lawsuit against Beaumont's Hooters restaurant out of court.

The mother and father of 32-year-old Amber Roussel were suing Hooters on the claim that the restaurant served too much alcohol to the driver who pleaded guilty to causing the crash that killed Roussel.

Amber's mother, Melba Breaud, settled Thursday morning before the trial resumed and Thursday afternoon amber's adoptive father, Brent Breaud, also settled.

Now both parents say they will try to close this chapter in their lives and attempt to move forward.

Brent Breaud chose not to talk to 12News on camera.

But Melba says now the journey continues to preserve Amber's memory and make sure Amber's children are taken care of.

To start that journey Thursday afternoon Melba and Amber's daughter Lauren went to the area on I10 where the fatal car crash happened to place flowers and balloons in Amber's memory.

Both parents wanted to hold Hooters accountable for its alcohol service, which they believe they did.

The Breaud's each made confidential agreements with Hooters so the amounts of their settlements will not be released.
