    His trousers were caught in an escallator ,his leg broke,knee was messed up and he was left dangling 40 ft. in the air.Saw this in local newspapers today.
    To get from the ground level there to the casino you have to ride up a high ,steep escallator . Next level same thing. Idea is to provide spectacular ocean views, not to cripple anybody.
    Surprised he's only suing for 75K.

    Likely he is suing for at least $75k. That is minimum needed for federal courts to take the case when their reason to do so is diversity.

    "Bankruptcy" in the legal sense doesn't mean they're out of money, especially when you're talking about a big corporation as opposed to an individual. In a normal bankruptcy, you can still make claims against the estate; here, it doesn't matter anyway because this is a prepackaged bankruptcy (which is to say, their creditors agreed to the terms before filing) that they're going to emerge from fairly quickly.
