Woman Sues Jerry Jones, Claiming His Gate Damaged Her Bentley
Jerry Jones, it seems, is headed back to court. The Cowboys owner, who in the last year has successfully fought suits claiming that he sexually assaulted a woman and defrauded ticket buyers at Super Bowl XLV who ended up without seats, is accused this time of failing to properly maintain the gate at his Preston Road home, leading to the passenger side of a 2007 Bentley Continental Flying Spur suffering damage.
Joan Wynne says she was leaving the Jones compound on September 30, 2014, in the Bentley when an exit gate closed prematurely on the car. Jones, Wynne says, and wife Gene operated the gate improperly and let it deteriorate to the point that it screwed up her car extra bad.
Wynne wants between $100,000 and $200,000 from the Joneses because their gate did not have an appropriate rubber covering on its edge and because it had a bolt sticking out of it that made contact with Wynne's car.
In doing some (brief) Internet research, we were able to find one 2007 Bentley Continental Flying Spur for sale in Dallas. Texas Import Sales is offering it for just less than $80k.
Both Wynne's and Jones' attorney have not replied to a request for comment, we'll update this space if they do.
