Montana couple sues Albertsons after knife slashing
Gotta love our litigious society.

quote:

Missoula couple Dylan and Joselin Turner are taking Albertsons and Tremper Shopping Center to court after an unprovoked man wearing a grocery store vest slashed Dylan Turner’s arm in the parking lot and put him out of work
quote:

The man, Shane Roy Davis, on parole and believed to have been employed by Albertsons at the time, confronted the couple once, left, and then returned with a knife and tried to stab Dylan Turner in the neck
quote:

“Dylan blocked the knife attack with his right forearm,” the complaint said. “The knife attack sliced an artery in Dylan’s forearm, causing, in Dylan’s words, ‘a geyser of blood.’”
quote:

“Albertson’s [sic] negligently supervised or negligently failed to control Davis,” the court record said. “Albertson’s knew or should have known that Davis was on parole for burglary and had a documented history of mental disease(s) or disorder(s) associated with the burglary, yet Albertson’s failed to supervise or otherwise control Davis in a manner sufficient for Albertson’s to identify and timely respond to Davis engaging in harmful conduct toward members of the public.”
quote:

The couple is asking the court to find Albertsons guilty of actual malice and pay punitive damages. The couple also wants the court to find that Tremper, which leases space to Albertsons, should have exercised more reasonable care and must pay damages as a result.

What degree of security, if any, should be provided by Albertsons in your view?

If you wonder why ex cons have limited employment options, shite like this comes to mind.

So Ford the shooting at IHOP on Siegen of a guy on work release.

Not hiring felons.

Why?

Do you apply this to every situation?

Should the employer always be held liable for the actions of the employee?

Asking about past criminal convictions is racist (and sometimes illegal.)

If the perp was indeed a felon, I can see Albertsons being liable. Now, the Tremper Shopping Center, no fricking way.

Why aren't they suing the perp?

If you employ someone who has a history of something and they do it again, YES they should be fricking held accountable.

If you are an accounting firm and hire a convicted embezzler, you should be liable when he steals again.

I don't know the details of his prior felonies, other than burglary. Was that utilizing a weapon, were others involved, anyone harmed?

Seems like Albertsons better have a valid excuse to not have concerns over hiring this guy. If they didn't do their due diligence in the hiring process and background check, then yes they have a liability here.

Should we just assume all Albertsons employees are dangerous convicts and be prepared to draw a gun everytime one of them approaches us?

For their negligent acts, sure. For their intentional acts, maybe-- especially if it was foreseeable. Like hiring a felon already convicted of burglary

He was employed by Albertsons. I don't see a whole lot wrong. It's one thing if a random fricker ran in and stabbed someone. Much different if someone actively employed stabs a damn customer.

Suing the property owner is overboard, though.

So, no matter what the felony, they should be held liable? What if it was malfeasance in office? Felony DWI?

Did Albertsons know a convicted burglar would end up knifing a customer?

Many of those workers at IHOP ect, even have ankle monitors attached to them. Granted, we’re talking about restaurant back of the house staff, however employing someone with a sizable criminal record is an immense liability for any business.

Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, is it? Notice I said "felon already convicted of burglary".

If Derek Ponamsky knifed me up at an LSU game then no.
