This alleged mannequin situation at Planet Hollywood is seemingly the first time a gaming facility is being sued by a gambler who said that he suffered from injuries attained when he jumped all over in the room where he found a plastic dummy.
Is the first lawsuit ever from the gambler the first time that the gaming facility is being sued by bettors who said that he suffered from injuries attained when he jumped all over in the room where he found a plastic dummy.
According to the legal documents filed by the guest through his lawyers, Jacobs Kent Boutwell who hails from the southern part of California entered his room that did not have lights at the time and saw a shadowy figure of a silhouette that was discernible.
The filing says that he was so much frightened because he thought in his mind that the assailant was waiting for him to enter the room. With Marijuana Ban Enforcement Expected To Be Back, What Of Online Gambling?
Jacobs then quickly jumped outside the house, but before he could trace the door, he hit himself against the wall and fell on the floor severally before he could manage to dash out.
Kent’s assailant was himself inside the dark room. After the incident, one could easily tell that he must have encountered a terrible scenario because he suffered quite some injuries.
A medical examination indicates that Kent hurt his limbs, some organs, the entire body, mind, and even the nervous system. Doctors say that although it is early to say, the injuries Jacobs suffered could even lead to permanent fractures and abnormalities.
Yes, he was fleeing a non-existent assailant, but he got himself into rather much more trouble and harm.
Preliminary investigations indicate that indeed there was a dummy inside the darkened room that Jacobs entered that night. More information confirmed that the model, which dressed, was awaiting the morning after for a scheduled promotion.
However, during the incident, the dressed up model was securely locked up inside a glass cabinet. That is the reason why this gambler could be able to see it even though it was still dark thanks to the reflection from the glass.
When commenting on his client’s case, Richard Johnson confessed that he has many years of experience in handling online casino cases but Jacobs’ was a peculiar one.
“I have a profound experience in dealing with such situations and even complex than this, but I must admit that it is indeed a new thing to me. Speaking of a dummy that is dressed up for a promotion and locked inside a safe and all another set of facts is truly a remarkable case,” Johnson said.
Jacobs’ case is not the first one to have involved online casino as well as land-based casinos.
In 2013, a gambler by the name David Hayes from Ohio sued Hollywood Casino in Columbus for what he thought was an inside job.
Hayes was robbed of some $35, 800 that he had won the very night from the same casino.
Hayes said that upon winning the prize, he asked the management to pay him his money in the form of a check, but they insisted that he be paid cash. He was also requested to state his address in front of other gamblers apparently. Later, he was robbed.
David sued the casino for negligence. There are several other cases involving casinos with clients citing negligence.
