Could this senseless loss of life have been prevented?

Local News

Gunfire erupted outside a Nashville hookah lounge Friday, May 11, 2018, claiming the life of 24-year-old Cesar Reza.

According to Tennesseean reports, “officers responded to the shooting at the parking lot of the Arabian Palace at 1135 Bell Road,” shortly before 1:30 a.m. Mr. Reza apparently “pulled into the parking lot behind a man who was trying to back out.” The other driver allegedly opened fire during a subsequent argument, fatally striking Mr. Reza.

An Antioch Patch investigation reveals this is the seventh hookah lounge shooting in Davidson County in the past year, including another outside the same establishment in January 2018.

Did negligent security contribute to this senseless Nashville hookah lounge shooting? We represent individuals and families who have suffered a tragic loss or injury as a consequence of negligent property security. Read Our Legal Take below to find out if Mr. Reza’s family may have a legal avenue for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Tennessee, or call now for a free consultation with our legal team: 888.842.1616.

Our Legal Take

Nightclub and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What additional security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, off-duty police, and security patrols, were implemented by the lounge and parking lot owners following media reports of prior crime at area hookah lounges?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the business or parking lot owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Cesar Reza may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Could this tragic loss of life have been prevented?

Local News

Gunfire erupted outside an Inglewood restaurant Tuesday, April 17, 2018, claiming the lives of 36-year-old Delroy Bogle of Las Vegas and a second, unidentified man.

According to CBS LA, the shooting occurred “in a strip mall on the 1100 block of N. La Brea Avenue.” An argument inside a “Jamaican Restaurant” apparently escalated into gunfire in the parking lot outside. Tragically, Mr. Bogle and a second victim succumbed to fatal injuries. It is unclear whether the victims were involved in the dispute or innocent bystanders. Inglewood police are allegedly still searching for a man and woman in connection with the shooting, per ABC 7 reports.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Mr. Bogle’s family. Sadly, the site indicates he leaves behind a wife and six children.

Our Legal Take

Restaurant and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Did restaurant staff call police at the start of the initial altercation, prior to an escalation to violence? 
  • What parking lot security measures, such as surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect patrons at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the restaurant or shopping center owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the families of Delroy Bogle and the other victim of this tragedy may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their wrongful deaths.

Multiple media outlets have launched investigations into a string of alleged sexual assaults at popular massage chain, Massage Envy. These allegations span several years, revealing a shocking history of misconduct.

In December 2017, a Thornton mother shared her story of alleged misconduct involving her daughter with Denver 7, after she reported “Massage Envy staff and corporate did nothing to investigate or prevent it from happening again.”

The allegation is one of many. A November 2017 investigation by BuzzFeed News revealed, “More than 180 people across the United States have filed sexual assault lawsuits, police reports and other sexual misconduct complaints against Massage Envy spas, their employees and the national company.”

Unfortunately, some state and local laws are set up to protect massage business owners rather than victims. Denver 7 reports, Aurora community leaders are now “taking action to protect victims of sexual assault at massage spas….The city’s new ordinance would make it mandatory for massage therapy business to report any alleged sexual assaults to police, while also cracking down on prostitution and human trafficking through required licensing.”

Victims of Massage Spa and Clinic Sexual Assault: Know Your Rights

Legal advocates for victims of sexual assault and property negligence at The Murray Law Firm are saddened by the media reports and support recent attempts by community leaders to hold business owners accountable. Our firm has represented victims of massage spas and clinics, and assaults and rapes at these establishments have become all too frequent.  The recent investigative reports continue to raise grave questions about employee screenings and criminal background checks.
