The suit claims Neal harassed Addison throughout the night while she was inside purple haze. It said employees were told about the harassment, but did not do anything because of the club's policies.
It said in part management "negligently, carelessly, and recklessly failed to prevent the death by gunshot of Ms. Addison by failing to hire or otherwise provide adequate security personnel for the protection of Purple Haze, LLC patrons."
