I thought this was going to be about this Marriott (horror) story:


Stamford Marriott claims woman was negligent in her own rape

08/12/2009 - A Connecticut hotel where a woman was raped at gunpoint in front of her children says the victim was careless and negligent.

 

The papers filed last month in Superior Court by the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa say the victim "failed to exercise due care for her own safety and the safety of her children and proper use of her senses and facilities."

Prosecutors say Gary Fricker assaulted the woman in her minivan in the hotel's parking garage in front of her two children, then ages 3 and 5. Fricker is now serving 20 years in prison.

 

The hotel's lawyers were responding to a lawsuit claiming the hotel failed to prevent the 2006 attack.

In court filings, the woman's lawyers have denied those allegations.....

 

The woman, identified in court papers only as Jane Doe, claims in the suit that Fricker had been in the hotel and garage acting suspiciously days before the attack, as well as the afternoon of the attack, and the hotel failed to notice him, apprehend him or make him leave. During the attack, security personnel did not see or stop him, the suit claims.....

Considering the reasonable expectation of  service and personal safety that one pays for in an upscale hotel, the trauma to the wife, and resulting life-long problems for the two kids, this sounds like it should be worth general, compensatory and punitive damages in the range north of 20 million dollars.

 

I hope they get it.

So do I.  I'm surprised that the Marriott is fighting this and choosing to 'trash' the victim in the press.  WTH are they doing subpoenaing her Pilate's instructor?   How does that have anything to do with being raped by a transient rapist?  Great PR for the Marriott....Come stay with us, but be prepared to have your own security with you.

In the great and oh-so-common tradition of Blame The Victim, the lawyers say

the victim "failed to exercise due care for her own safety and the safety of her children", but apparently don't see that the hotel staff had an obligation to exercise due care for their guests.

 

BTW, even Marriott is distancing themselves from this idiotic statement by their lawyers.   http://www.ksl.com/?nid=157&sid=7522820

That was hilarious. Don't truly LOL but that one I had to look around to make sure coworkers didn't think I was crazy.
