James Mackler Quoted in Tennessean Regarding Wrongful Death Suit

Bone McAllester Norton attorney James Mackler was quoted in a June 17th article in the Tennessean about a wrongful death suit. The family of Jay Luther, co-owner of Germantown Café, filed a negligence lawsuit against the company that installed a security system in the restaurant, the business that delivered dry ice, Metro Police and others after Luther died last year as a result of being locked in the restaurant’s walk-in cooler.

“A successful and well-loved business man and community member died in the prime of his life because of the failures spelled out in the complaint. If not for these failures and other omissions, Jay would be alive today,” James said.
