Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, Taylor A. King & Associates, P.A., and The Law Offices of Conrad J. Benedetto to Represent Victims of Mass Shooting at Little Rock Club

Posted on: August 14th, 2017 by Romanucci & Blandin

CHICAGO, IL – (August 8, 2017) Attorneys from Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, Taylor A. King & Associates, P.A., and The Law Offices of Conrad J. Benedetto announced today that they have been retained to represent over 15 victims of the disturbing mass shooting that took place at Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansas on July 1, 2017.

In the early morning hours of July 1, a barrage of gunfire rang out at the popular downtown club where Memphis rapper Ricky Hampton was performing. Ultimately, 28 individuals were injured during a shooting at Power Ultra Lounge, leaving a number in critical condition. Since the incident, Hampton was placed under arrest and has been ordered to remain detained until trial.

According to public records, Power Ultra Lounge was the source of over three dozen civil and criminal complaints which local and state authorities responded to during a four-year time period. Furthermore, the club was on a property zoned for a restaurant – not a club or concert venue. “The venue was clearly operating outside of the law for years and hired a performer with a 10-year history of run-ins with law enforcement.  Yet, neither the club nor authorities provided security to patrons,” said J.D. Hays, Jr., Attorney at Taylor A. King & Associates, P.A. “This could have been prevented, but rather it took a mass shooting that left 28 injured to get someone’s attention.”

“Despite all the complaints and warnings, city officials never exercised any authority to sanction or close down Power Ultra,” added Antonio M. Romanucci, Principal and Partner at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC. “Our investigations over the next several months will be taking a closer look into the actions of the City and how institutions like Power Ultra can be licensed to do one thing, but actually be operating as a completely different entity. We will keep the media apprised as our investigations continue.”
