duty, breach, and damages in a case
Trotsky is on a business trip, and rents a room at the luxurious Dew Be Us Hotel Complex. The hotel does not have a nighttime desk clerk and leaves the lobby empty all night long. Jacson walks in, takes Trotsky’s room key from behind the counter, and goes to Trotsky’s room. He robs Trotsky and stabs him with an ice pick. Trotsky survives and sues the hotel in negligence. How will Trotsky prove his case? How might Dew Be Us Hotel defend itself? Who wins and why?
