(KMOV) – A St. Louis County man has filed a lawsuit against the Casino Queen after he was followed, shot and robbed after winning nearly $18,000 in April of 2009. He claims that the casino did not do enough to protect him.
In the lawsuit, the victim, mark Meyers, claims that the Casino Queen “ruined his life,” and blames security for physical, financial and mental bruises. After the incident, Myers lost his job, and can no longer run or exercise after having multiple surgeries over the past two years.
Meyers’ lawyer says he believes the casino, its staff and security knew, or should have known, of this hazardous condition where predators prey on winning patrons.
In return, the Casino Queen released this statement:
The Casino Queen is unable to comment on pending legal matters. However, it is
important to note that Casino Queen has provided an environment for millions
of patrons to safely enjoy gaming for almost 20 years.
Part of the purpose of the lawsuit is to demand that the casino take action to keep others from falling prey to gambling hall predators.
