An example of an US attempt to stop malicious lawsuits
Breitbart's readers don't seem to like it much. Could they really believe that the hotel should be held liable for the shooting? Must come from having grown up in the USA.
There is a socialist tendency in modern law to hold those who can pay, responsible. I suspect that the Breitbart readers follow that tendency. Our own law holding employers liable for delicts (torts), committed by employees, is a case in point. Although basic idea is that the person should commit the delict in the course of his employment and in pursuance of his employers business, that basic idea has been greatly hollowed out, to the extent even that an employee acting outside his instructions and mandate can sometimes cause an employer to be held liable.
The fact that I am considered an adult is both terrifying and hillarious
