Hawaii man sues Las Vegas casino for negligence

A Hawaii man is suing a Las Vegas hotel and casino where he was beaten and robbed in 2010.

Calvin Kawamura's lawsuit filed last week in federal court in Honolulu claims Main Street Station was negligent in not providing sufficient security in a long, dark hallway that leads to restrooms.

The lawsuit says Kawamura was brutally attacked and robbed of $300 by a homeless man who wandered into a casino bathroom.

Kawamura's attorney Edmund Saffery tells Hawaii News Now the casino markets itself as a home away from home for Hawaii residents who frequent Las Vegas and that it should be a safe place for visitors.

Main Street Station operator Boyd Gaming Corp. declined to comment on pending litigation.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified financial damages.
