A patron is suing a Chicago club and its security detail, alleging they failed to prevent him from being shot at the club.
Edward Caravana filed a lawsuit on Aug. 4 in Cook County Circuit Court against Hearts Partnership, doing business as Hearts Night Club Chicago, 1115 NorthBranch, Diageo Americas Supply Inc., doing business as Ciroc, and On Q Protection and Investigation Services.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 6, 2014, Caravana was at the Hearts Night Club, 1115 N. Branch St., Chicago, for which On Q provided security services. The suit says there was a shooting at the club that night and Caravana was shot, suffering injuries, lost wages and a normal life, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.
The lawsuit says the defendants failed to manage the location to prevent danger, warn Caravana of pending danger, control the premises to avoid a shooting, and provide well-trained security and a safe environment.
Caravana seeks damages of more than $100,000, plus costs. He is represented by attorney Matthew B. Karchmar of Karchmar & Lambert in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L007940.
