Lawsuits Filed on Behalf of Aurora Theater Shooting Victims
Keating Wagner Polidori Free filed suits in federal district court against Cinemark, USA, Inc. on behalf of three victims of the Aurora theater shooting that occurred on July 20th. The lawsuit is based upon Cinemark’s failure to provide for the safety and security of its theater and its patrons.
The lawsuit alleges that readily available security procedures, security equipment and security personnel would likely have prevented or deterred the gunman from accomplishing his planned assault on the theater’s patrons.
The three victims, Denise Traynom, Brandon Axelrod and Joshua Nowlan, were severely injured as a result of the theater’s conduct.
Other law firms anticipate filing complaints based upon these events including Lorraine Parker and Peter McClenahan of Leventhal Brown & Puga.
