19 March 2015, the Honorable Thomas A. Dickerson on protecting hotel guests

On 19 March 2015, the Hon. Thomas A. Dickerson, writing for eturbonews.com, penned an article titled, “Primer on hotel law: The common law – duty to protect guests from others.” In it, Dickerson comments on past precedents in the U.S. – specifically cases such as Shadday v. Omni Hotels Management Corp. (2007), which deals with the liability of hotels regarding rape or assault of its guests. While this is focused on crime, the application to terror cases is obvious.
