i'm NEVER going to stay in a marriott EVER

update from 8/18

and i'm going to ask you to do the same if at all possible. if i'm reading this story correctly

#1) the marriott is blaming a woman for her OWN rape. the rape happened in a marriott garage.

#2) the marriott is claiming the woman was careless yet says it is NOT at fault because "the ACTS were beyond their control" (but apparently NOT beyond control of the women who was raped)

#3) the marriott called a BUNCH of witnesses who were friends, family or otherwise knew the woman. these 'witnesses' had NO KNOWLEDGE OF HER ASSAULT AND THERE WAS NO REASON FOR THEM TO BE CALLED OTHER THAN TO a) identify the victim whose identify of course was not SUPPOSED TO BE revealed TO ANY EFFING ONE and b) intimidate her

again, if i'm reading this correctly and it's all true, eff the marriott. every single person in the world should be OUTRAGED at the marriott's conduct

(by the way, i am in no way saying the marriott was GUILTY of neglect in the rape. i don't know if they were or not. that's not the point. the point is it appears they are fighting dirty.
oh did i mention the woman was raped in front of her two childen aged 3 and 5? did i also mention the rapist gary fricker had a gun on her children the WHOLE time and threatened their lives if the woman didn't comply?

Stamford Marriott claims woman was negligent in her own rape

STAMFORD -- A downtown hotel being sued by a woman raped at gunpoint in its parking garage is claiming she was careless, negligent and "failed to exercise due care for her own safety and the safety of her children and proper use of her senses and facilities," according to court documents.

The victim's attorneys also argue the hotel has inadvertently identified her to acquaintances by asking them to testify.

The Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa, along with the firms in charge of managing the hotel and its parking garage, made the claim as part of a list of special defenses filed in state Superior Court in Stamford last month. Such defenses allow defendants in civil suits to argue they are not responsible for damages even if the plaintiff's story is true.

The special defenses, and the plaintiff's argument against them, are a few of the documents filed in a series of arguments and counterarguments as the case heads for trial, scheduled for April.

The woman filed the lawsuit in May 2008, six months after Danbury native Gary Fricker, 56, was sentenced to 20 years in prison after a plea deal in the case.

On Oct. 10, 2006, Fricker stuck a handgun in the back of the then 40-year-old woman and forced her and her children, then 3 and 5, into their minivan as they left the hotel, according to court documents...............
