The Miami Herald: South Beach Security Conference [May 4, 2009] starstarstarstarstar


"Group stresses safety in night spots: Representatives of local law enforcement agencies and the employees and owners of
resorts, bars and nightclubs gather to talk about security"

Civil trial attorney John Elliott Leighton promised a room full of nightclub, restaurant, hotel and bar employees and owners he would take them down should they meet again.

Leighton, who represents victims of crime, noted: "I'm talking to you for the first time and last time in public."

It was part of a sobering message to the group gathered at the Palms Resort in South Beach for a daylong conference on violence and security in South Florida night spots.

"Just because you are a responsible business doesn't mean you are immune to liability," Leighton said. "If you haven't done your due diligence beforehand you haven't done your job and I own your business."
