Another lawsuit has been filed on behalf of several victims of the Aurora, Colo. theater shooting. The lawsuit was filed in Arapahoe County District Court and contends Plano, Texas-based Cinemark and Town Center at Aurora failed to protect customers and were guilty of gross negligence. Lawsuits filed against Cinemark in federal court also cite a lapse in security at the theater. As a defense, Cinemark has said it couldn’t have foreseen the attack. Simon Property Group contends the shooting didn’t happen within its Town Center at Aurora mall. It says further that its company has no involvement with the theater’s operation.
Twenty-four-year-old James Holmes was charged in the July 20 shooting that killed 12 and wounded 58. This tragic event is just another example of what happens in a society where reasonable control on the access to guns – especially assault weapons – is virtually non-existent in many states.
