An Iowa City man shot outside of Los Cocos, 1921 Keokuk St., on Aug. 9, 2009, is suing the now-defunct bar.

According to court documents, Cortez Parker is suing the since-closed establishment, alleging that it allowed one of its patrons to become intoxicated and subsequently shoot him.

Parker and Bernard J. Butler were at Los Cocos bar on Aug. 9, 2009, at approximately 1 a.m. when Butler — who is 18 and thus was in violation of Iowa City’s “under 19” ordinance — allegedly became intoxicated and shot Parker, according to court documents. Parker sustained serious injuries.

He has demanded a trial by jury.
