Torrence Brown, Jr., one of the victims in the Aurora shooting that claimed the lives of 12 people and wounded 59 others, plans on filing a lawsuit against three defendants, as he is said to suffer from extreme trauma.
Brown's lawsuit focuses on three defendants; he feels that the Century 16 Theater, where suspected gunman James Holmes went on his shooting massacre, was negligent, he plans on suing Holmes' doctor, and Warner Bros. for releasing The Dark Knight - a movie he feels was particularly violent.
As reported by TMZ:
Brown has hired attorney Donald Karpel to rep him. Karpel tells TMZ ... he is targeting 3 defendants.
-The theater. Karpel claims it was negligent for the theater to have an emergency door in the front that was not alarmed or guarded. It's widely believed Holmes entered the theater with a ticket, propped the emergency door open from inside, went to his car and returned with guns.
-Holmes' doctors. Karpel says it appears Holmes was on several medications -- prescribed by one or more doctors -- at the time of the shooting and he believes the docs did not properly monitor Holmes.
-Warner Bros. Karpel says "Dark Knight Rises" was particularly violent and Holmes mimicked some of the action. The attorney says theater goers were helpless because they thought the shooter was part of the movie. Karpel tells TMZ, "Somebody has to be responsible for the rampant violence that is shown today."
Expect more lawsuits to come forward, but do you think that Brown’s filing holds any merit?
