JACKSON, Miss. -- A lawsuit claims a Mississippi casino served so much alcohol to a man on medications that he died on the floor of his hotel bathroom.
The lawsuit against IP Casino Resort and Spa in Biloxi was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport. It seeks damages of $75 million.
The suit claims casino workers kept serving free drinks to 30-year-old Bryan Lee Glenn after he was drunk in August 2009. The suit says workers ignored repeated pleas from Glenn's family to stop serving him because he was on multiple prescription medications.
The suit says Glenn died in his hotel room. He'd been on medications for psychosis, traumatic brain injury and other injuries from an accident.
A casino spokeswoman said the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.
If you can't control drugs in a maximum security prison, then how can you control drugs in a free society?
If it's true that there was a Big Bang, everything that each of us are was once contained in that needle tip of highly condensed matter. Over time, the Universe grew in ways which enabled it to see and understand itself. We are the universe looking back at itself.

This man had a traumatic brain injury, he clearly was not right in the head and getting someone like this to listen to you can sometimes be impossible. My father is a brain injury victim and I could totally see this situation happening to him in a casino setting, it is impossible to explain to people who are unaware of the effects of a head injury. The scary thing is, a person might just seem slightly off to someone unaware, but under the surface might have the cognitive levels of a 10 year old, yet they are of course allowed to make their own life decisions because, as this article says "he's old enough to make decisions for himself."
It makes me very sad to read this article knowing what pain his family went through dealing with this mans brain injury and now losing him because of the ignorance of others.
