Cinemark (CNK -1.4%) seeks a dismissal from a Colorado judge in the cases filed against it by victims of the theater shooting in July. The company's defense hedges on the theory that random acts, by definition, are not legally foreseeable, while the plaintiffs charge that proper security protocols weren't in place at the company's chain of theaters.

  • Yes, of course, a theater chain should be responsible for murders by a lunatic. Perhaps, they should have required metal-detector scanning to attend and posted armed guards at all emergency exits.

     

    We are truly nuts in this litigious society.

  • agreed Tack, ridiculous lawsuit and the judge should throw it out. Disgusting how some people attempt to profit off of situations like this... I wonder if the names of the plaintiffs are public.
