Colorado theater shooting victims sue movie theater owners

The three injured moviegoers claim that the theater failed to provide adequate security personnel and equipment

Three victims of the Colorado movie theater shooting filed lawsuits Friday against the theater’s owner, claiming that its inadequate security procedures failed to prevent the attack that killed 12 people and injured another 58.

Joshua Nowlan, Brandon Axelrod and Axelrod’s wife, Denise Traynom, filed two separate lawsuits against Cinemark Theaters, the parent company of the Century 16 multiplex in Aurora, Colo. All three plaintiffs were reportedly wounded in the shooting, which occurred at the midnight premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises.”
