Jury: Harrah’s Liable for Damages in Casino Brawl

November 8, 2010

A civil court jury has found Harrah’s Laughlin liable for injuries suffered by bystanders in a southern Nevada casino when a deadly brawl broke out between rival biker gangs during a motorcycle rally in 2002.

Las Vegas attorney Brent Bryson said Harrah’s Laughlin officials knew trouble was brewing but did nothing to stop Hell’s Angels and Mongols motorcycle gang members from clashing on the casino floor. Three people were killed and more than a dozen were hurt during the shoot-out.

Following the verdict, Harrah’s settled with five bystanders.
