After the movie theater shooting in an Aurora, Colorado theater in 2012, a group of the victims got together to sue the theater chain Cinemark for not doing enough to prevent such an incident from occurring. They claimed that security flaws in the theater prevented employees from stopping someone carrying weapons onto the premises. This past May, a judge sided with Cinemark against the victims, claiming that the chain had no way of knowing about the shooter beforehand, and Cinemark was then legally able to recoup costs from the victims, which it fixed at $700,000. Now, the chain is finally dropping the claim, effectively ending the suit.
The remaining plaintiffs in the case were warned that they may owe Cinemark the legal costs if they didn't win the case, however decided to stick it out in an effort to find the chain guilty of not doing enough to stop the massacre.
