GRETNA – A group of musicians is suing a local casino that allegedly is refusing to release a video of its parking lot after vehicles were damaged in the area while they were performing inside.
David Rubin, Alonzo Johnson, Anthony Rubin, Russel Dorian, Milton Lewis and James Hudson filed suit against Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. and Boomtown Casino in the 24th Judicial District Court on Dec. 20.
The plaintiffs assert that when they were performing at the Boomtown Casino in Harvey their vehicles were damaged by unknown perpetrators who either keyed or scraped the paint of their vehicles. Casino officials are alleged to have instructed them to park in the area where the damage occurred. The plaintiffs claim that after they found the damage to their vehicles they sought to view video from cameras in the area, but were told Boomtown had no responsibility for the damage and refused to share the film. The plaintiffs ask the court to hold Boomtown responsible should it be proven one of its employees is responsible for the damage.
The defendant is accused of failing to use due care, allotting a specific place for vehicle to be parked and failing to provide adequate security and inadequately training security employees.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for damages to their vehicles.
The plaintiffs are represented by attorney Frank M. Buck of New Orleans.
The case has been assigned to Division P Judge Lee V. Faulkner Jr.
Case no. 734-026.
