The family of a U.S. Customs employee who was killed during a holdup at an ATM in Los Angeles has filed suit against the Bank of America. According to allegations in the lawsuit, filed in a California state court, there had been at least three holdups at the same ATM since last August. The 47-year-old was shot in the back and killed in March as he ran from attackers who tried to rob him at a Bank of America location. The plaintiff’s lawyer, John Sweeney, contends that the bank had a duty to notify the public of the robberies and to take measures to protect customers. The suit also names a man and a woman who were arrested in connection with the killing, accusing them of assault and battery. It’s contended that the Bank was negligent and thus responsible in part for the death.
