Banks may be liable to victims of ATM robberies

Willie Sutton, the notorious bank robber, is famous, although perhaps incorrectly so, for having responded to the question of why he robbed banks with the line, 'Because that's where the money is." Similarly, many crimes are committed at or near the vicinity of ATMs located on the exterior of banks. If the ATM itself is hacked or a customer is assaulted, those are crimes for Georgia law enforcement agencies to deal with. But there may be another legal course of action for the customer to pursue.

Las Vegas mass shooting case is not yet settled

The horrific events of October 1, 2017 stunned the country when a lone gunman fired into a crowd of outdoor concertgoers at the Route 91 festival. Many Georgia residents were among the more than 50 people killed, with hundreds more sustaining gunshot wounds or injuries from the panic that ensued. In trying to make sense out of a seemingly senseless event, many victims and their families looked to MGM Resorts International, the owner of Mandalay Bay where the concert took place and the perpetrator had a room from where the assault took place.

Lawsuit likely coming in Madden video game tournament shooting

Georgia residents have likely heard about the shooting that took place on August 26. That is the day a 24-year-old man opened fire during a Madden video game tournament at GLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville. As a result, many survivors of the shooting are planning to file a negligence lawsuit. The attorney representing the potential plaintiffs has not said who the defendants may be. The bar itself is located in an area called Jacksonville Landing that is owned by the city.

Lawsuit alleges school district knew about sexual abuse

Georgia law requires teachers and school administrators to contact law enforcement when they have reasonable cause to believe that children are being abused, but a lawsuit filed on July 6 alleges that Gwinnett County Public Schools and several of its senior administrators failed to meet this legal duty. The litigation was filed on behalf of one of the victims of Gwinnet High School's former band teacher Villie Jones. Jones is currently incarcerated as he awaits his trial. He faces 21 counts of child molestation and sexual abuse.

Staying safe in the parking lot

Georgia residents and other people throughout the country could be victims of parking lot assaults. To reduce the odds of one occurring, it is recommended that an individual park in an area that has adequate lighting. In the event that a person senses an attack may be imminent, it can be a good idea to push the panic button on car key. This will emit a loud noise that may scare an attacker away.

In wake of Parkland shooting, father files wrongful death suit

Many Georgia residents were shocked by the school shooting that occurred back in February in Parkland, Fla. The shooter faces 17 charges of murder and 17 charges of attempted murder. In addition, two lawsuits have been filed on behalf of the victims. The first was filed in early April by the parents of a student whose injuries now confine him to a wheelchair. The second is a wrongful death suit just recently filed in a Broward County court.

Tips for maintaining hotel safety and security

Hotel owners in Georgia may be wondering how they can maintain a safe yet welcoming atmosphere on their properties, especially when they host public events. This will require a plan that manages to train staff on work safety, educate guests on the reasonable use of the property and enforce preexisting security policies.

Special event security

Businesses and individuals in Georgia that organize or promote special events have multiple concerns. Depending on the nature of the event, organizers and planners have to find quality venues, coordinate food and beverages, attract entertainment and handle the logistics of managing a crowd. One area of logistics that is often ignored or downplayed is that of security.
