Settlement of Security System Lawsuit

October 2009

Mike Tanner represented the minor daughter of the deceased in a wrongful death action. The child’s father was murdered while working as a cashier in a liquor store. Mr. Tanner filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company that provided security services for the liquor store. The theory of liability was that the security company negligently provided an inappropriate security system for the store. Had an appropriate security system been provided, the murder could have been prevented. After taking the deposition of the corporate representative of the defendant, the case was settled at mediation for a substantial sum.
