Museum Guards Wanted Bulletproof Vests...



CBS news reports that a union official asked for protective vests for guards at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum two years ago, but that the vests were never purchased by Wackenhut Security, the guards' employer.

The racist pig who killed Stephen T. Johns (of blessed memory) will very likely prove to be insolvent. Will we see a lawsuit against Wackenhut, testing the Workers' Compensation immunity doctrine? Or maybe a suit against the museum itself (if it "negligently" declined to pay Wackenhut extra to purchase vests), testing sovereign immunity doctrines?

Insolvency of the bad guy is at the root of the expansion of many a tort doctrine...
