Lipcon spoke to us, briefly, about the case: "I'd love to comment on the details of the attack and settlement but we are bound by confidentiality clauses not to do so. I will say that the settlement was enough to teach the hotel and restaurant operators a lesson - don't operate your business without being conscious of the safety of your customers and the public. Don't just hire the first person that walks through the door...do your job, investigate the background and character of who you are putting into the public to promote your business. And to the hotels and motels out there....take precautions for the safely of your guests. Everyone needs to stop being careless."
