Man blames shooting on negligence

By Louie Torres | Aug 15, 2016

CHICAGO — A patron is suing Hearts Partnership LLC d/b/a Hearts Nights Club Chicago; 1115 Northbranch LLC; on Q Protection and Investigation Services; Forward Space LLC d/b/a Office Concepts; Sue Barakat; and John Doe, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries at a nightclub in connection with a shooting.

Lawrence Cox filed a complaint on Aug. 4 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide adequate security to their establishment to make sure their patrons were well protected.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 6, 2014, he sustained physical injuries from being shot. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to warn him regarding the danger and to provide well-trained security to avoid a shooting incident.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the court that will adequately compensate him. He is represented by Michael S. Shinsky of Kralovec, Jambois & Schwartz in Chicago.
