It’s been a little over two months since horrifying shootings in Aurora, Colorado during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, but the urge to find someone to blame hasn’t gone away. Two victims of the shooting want to blame the theater itself, and have filed a lawsuit against Cinemark USA Inc. seeking unspecified damages.
Denise Traynom and Brandon Axelrod, who suffered non-critical gunshot wounds during the July 20 shootings, filed the suit that claims Cinemark did not provide proper security for the theater, and that the exterior door lacked a security system. Here’s a sample statement from the first suit, via The Los Angeles Times:
“Any person who wished to make a surreptitious and unauthorized entry into the theater could easily determine that the lack of security personnel and lack of any alarm on the door at the right … would allow them to leave the theater, and re-enter without fear of being discovered, interfered with, monitored or stopped.”
