A Tragedy For Boyz II Men (II)
Highest Court N.D. Illinois
Year Ended 1997
Plaintiffs Estate of Music Manager(s)
Defendants Hotel Corporation(s)
Other Boyz II Men
Music Manager(s)
Short Description Concurrently with the criminal trial brought against the gunman in this incident, the family and estate of Boyz II Men's road manager sued several corporations, one controlling the hotel at which his murder took place and another that wwas responsible for hiring some of the group responsible for the attack, alleging various forms of negligence. The court held that the hotel corporation had indeed breached a duty to provide adequate security, and this breach may have proximately caused the death. However, the court held no action for negligent hiring or negligent training existed against the company who'd hired the group (some worked at the hotel in various capacities), thus barring direct actions by Plaintiffs and third-party complaints by Defendants. - LSW
