The first Dark Knight lawsuits have arrived: Three of the survivors of the shooting spree sued the theater yesterday and accused it of weak security, reports the Denver Post. The two lawsuits say the Aurora cinema had no security guards on duty for the midnight Friday showing, despite a history of incidents there. They also complain that the back door through which James Holmes gained entry had no alarm. Owner Cinemark didn't comment.

The survivors might have a case.

The Theater apparently had a published "No Weapons" policy.

Wouldn't that mean they, the theater owners, must take responsibility for protecting the moviegoers, once they have denied the moviegoers the right to defend themselves?

I think the plaintiffs might be one of those moronic people that would demand a metal detector and xray machine before demanding the theater remove their no weapons policy

Lawsuits like this is why we can't have nice things.
