This case involves a shooting in a Toronto nightclub. The plaintiff in the case was visiting his cousin in Toronto and decided to go to a nightclub. For the Thursday night, the nightclub was extremely busy (it was later revealed that the nightclub was over capacity), and the metal detector used to screen firearms was not working. Additionally, the security on the night in question was limited because two employees of the nightclub had called in sick. While at the bar, a fight broke out and the plaintiff was shot in the leg by another patron. In addition to a suit against the shooter, the plaintiff brought suit against the nightclub for inadequate security and the overcapacity which existed in the nightclub. Plaintiff retained a bar security expert for the case.
