CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada Supreme Court has upheld a $1 million verdict against a security firm accused of not doing enough to prevent the fatal attack of a man in a crime-riddled Las Vegas Wal-Mart parking lot.

The high court on Friday declined to grant a new trial to private security firm Wackenhut in the death of 51-year-old Michael Born.

The retired Air Force major had been changing his car's headlight in the parking lot in 2004 when Raymond Garrett punched him. Born later died of his injuries.

Lawyers for Born's relatives argued in 2011 that Wackenhut should have been more vigilant in protecting customers at the store on Nellis and Charleston. Attorneys said police were called to the store an average of three times a day prior to the attack.

This is amazing. Start working at home with Google. It’s a great work at home opportunity. Just work for few hours. I earn up to $100 a day. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out Fox81.com
