On May 7, 2010 a $200,000 settlement was agreed upon on behalf of a then 22 year-old night club patron who was stabbed in the abdomen and nose by another patron at a popular Times Square night club on 10/29/02 where the Club’s security guards failed to detect and stop patrons carrying weapons, despite having metal detectors in place. One of the defendants in the action had filed for bankruptcy during litigation, thus staying the prosecution of the action for years. The settlement has been structured thus providing Plaintiff with upfront cash and periodic payments for the next 17 years.
