Man Fatally Shot at Dupont Circle Restaurant: Legal Questions | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

A man was fatally shot outside of Heritage India, a local Dupont Circle restaurant last evening. The DC Metropolitan Police Department and Council Member Jack Evans have expressed concerns regarding security at the restaurant.  Patrick Regan and Paul Cornoni litigated a nearly identical case against a night club in DC a few years ago.  We obtained a $4.1 million dollar verdict on behalf of our client who suffered a traumatic brain injury after being assaulted as he was exiting a night club.  The night club failed to have the proper amount of security personnel working that evening.  A description of the case can be seen here.

An investigation should be undertaken to discover what security measures were put in place by this restaurant to ensure that this type of violence would not occur.  As Council Member Jack Evans state: “The overriding issue is you have restaurants that morph into a nightclub with promoters and bands and disc jockeys.  What precautions are they taking for security?”
