Attorney Marc Jay Bern, from the NYC-based law firm, BERN RIPKA LLP, is representing the 27 families in the civil lawsuit who are seeking damages against Cinemark, the company that owns the Century 16 Theater in Aurora, Colorado. (Case No. 2012CV1926, District Court, Arapahoe County, State of Colorado)

The civil lawsuit alleges that the theater owner disregarded a homeland security memo directed at theaters, failed to hire adequate security for the premiere of a film, failed to have proper alarms installed on theater exits and adequate CCTV camera coverage on the cinema exterior. The lawsuit further alleges that Cinemark did not properly intervene during the shooting and failed to follow their own security guidelines.

Jury selection in the civil lawsuit began Monday.
