Nicole Goeser, et al. v. Live Holdings Corporation, et al.
M2012-01241-COA-R3-CV

A patron at a sports bar shot and killed a man without threat or warning.  The widow of the murdered man and his daughter filed separate lawsuits which were later consolidated, naming the owner of the bar as defendant, and claiming that the victim’s death was the result of inadequate security on the premises. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment contending that he did not violate any duty owed to the plaintiffs, because the shooting that occurred was completely unforeseeable under the circumstances. The trial court granted the summary judgment motion. We affirm.
