Businesses Liable For Not Defending Against Crime

News from The Roanoke Times-Virginia Supreme Court rules shooting victim can sue motel A man attacked outside a motel is suing the motel. This particular Holiday Inn Express had a history of violent crimes, had been warned by the police about problems with the property and still got rid of their security force.

The case had been dismissed by a lower court, but the VA Supreme Court said that all of these facts meant the case should be heard by a jury. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. [KABA]
