CODY, Wyo. — A lawsuit stemming from an assault that cost a Cody man part of his nose is close to being resolved.
A trial date has been vacated for Brent Coffin, accused of aggravated assault and battery. Coffin's attorney, Nicholas Carter, said in court papers that he believes a resolution to the lawsuit has been reached.
Coffin was arrested after he allegedly bit off part of David Hodson-Eckert's nose during a fight at the Silver Dollar Bar in July 2013.
Court papers say Hodson-Eckert and others were trying to calm Coffin after he became angry that the men's room at the bar had run out of paper towels.
