By Philip Gonzales | Jan 17, 2019

MEDIA — A business invitee is suing Harrah's Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack, Brionna Powell and Garfield Shatya, casino owner and patrons, citing alleged negligence.

Antionette Mignogna filed a complaint on Jan. 7 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against the defendants, alleging they failed to properly maintain and control their establishment.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 12, 2017, she was a business invitee at defendant's casino and racetrack when defendants Powell and Shatya assaulted her. She allegedly suffered a fracture to her right foot that resulted in great pain, mental anguish and diminution in ability to enjoy life. 

The plaintiff says Harrah's failed to provide adequate security for its patrons and failed to employ and/or train personnel sufficiently qualified to supervise the establishment.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs. She is represented by Michael Weiss of Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
