Tan v. Arnel Mgmt. Co., B197706

In a suit brought against a management company and property owners after plaintiff was shot in an ungated portion of the common area in his apartment complex, judgment for defendants is reversed where evidence of three prior violent attacks by strangers in the common areas of the apartment complex were sufficiently similar to the attack on plaintiff to provide substantial evidence of the necessary degree of foreseeability to give rise to a duty on defendants to provide the relatively minimal security measures sought by plaintiffs.
