Innkeepers' negligent security, cont'd



Following on to Deborah La Fetra's discussion the other week is this recent Pennsylvania case raising the question of whether leaving a fraternity in possession of an unsupervised motel room should put an innkeeper on notice of potential sexual assault. One of the three judges dissented. (Hat tip reader V.R.)

This may also be the place to mention my own nominee for the Innkeeper's Negligent Security Hall of Fame, a case that arose from a shooting in the parking lot of a Hialeah, Fla. Ramada Inn, and which was summarized here and here.
