I don't know if she does or not.  Stores and malls release video tapes all the time of suspected shoplifters, etc. in our area.  But the trick is that a "criminal activity" has occurred.  But, if the security guards released it, the mall may get off the hook by firing them over it and saying they never authorized the release and it was gross negligence on the security guards.  Could go either way...

Well the whole purpose of the tapes is to aid in the prosecution of criminal activities.  I think she has a case.. Where  is Holli.. she can shine some light  I'm sure.   I mean heck if you can sue for getting burned because you didn't know your hot coffee was hot, then certainly you can sue  for the misuse of surveillance tapes.

Pooh

Oh I definately think she has a case, but I think it is more at the security guards than the mall, if the mall can prove they didn't know anything about it.

Yeah....where is our lawyer today???????

Yes but wouldn't the mall since they hired the company be responsible in part.

Two weeks ago my truck and trailer were towed when we went to help our son move.  It was towed from DD's apt complex, we had parked it where we were told to by an employee of the complex.  I had to pay 200.00 ransom fee but got it back hours later.  The apt said oh well, so sorry.  I said ahhh I don't think so, you hired the towing company, allowed them to cruise your lot and tow anything they found to be in offense to the rules.  I'm holding you responsible, and I want my money back.  The tow company was forced to refund my money by the complex I think in part because I had documented the mileage that we had to drive to pick up the truck, gas, time, etc... I think they caught on that I had nothing better to do then to take them to court... I have this saying you can *&#@ with me, but don't *&#@ with my money.  oh wait I don't use symbols in real life.

If you walked in a store today, and were standing at the cash register and the clerk pulled out a gun and shot you, then the clerk is liable but not the store if they had no indication the clerk would do something like that and had safety procedures in place....blah blah blah.  But if you can prove the store didn't offer help afterwards, or knew he had been saying he was going to do something like that, or saw him with a gun, blah blah blah...the store is just as much or more liable.  At least that is what we run into here.

It can go either way depending on the situation.

Thanks Pooh, I'm very exhausted now. Is it wine-thirty yet?

That is the wonderful part of our justice system.. it can go either way depending on the judge.. then another judge can rule against the first judge.. then like Anna Nichol we'll all be dead and it will still be going on.

Soooo true.. but I did get my money back and since my dh had accepted the loss and told me that I was  wasting my time.. he got back 50.00 since it was his money I guess... I got the rest.. that mother/daughter pedicure (DELUX -thank you hubby) and lunch out was simply wonderful.

Pooh

Lol...yay mani/pedi!  Pen, I think it is going to be a margarita night for me.  DH just text me and said he was cleaning house again...think I set a precedent last week?

Why didn't our minister tell us about this strategy when we went in for premarital counseling? It might have saved DH from a lot of nagging.
