October 29, 2018

Greg Lee (Partner-Los Angeles) and Sonya Tamiry (Associate-Los Angeles) obtained summary judgment for a security services provider in a hospital assault case in Superior Court of California, County of Ventura. The plaintiff, an accomplished composer and producer, was speaking to patients at a psychiatric hospital as part of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting when he was physically attacked by a patient, sustaining cranial nerve injuries and loss of hearing. The plaintiff sued the security services provider, alleging that negligent security had led to the attack. Greg and Sonya moved for summary judgment arguing, among other things, that the plaintiff was wrongfully attempting to hold the security services provider liable for nonexistent duties, and that the security services personnel had acted in full accordance with their established responsibilities. The trial judge granted Greg and Sonya’s motion for summary judgment in its entirety.
