Distraught bride Anna Goldschmidt was set to have a million-dollar wedding reception with groom Elan Stratiyevsky at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Manhattan when a guest accidentally fired a gun injuring another female guest. As a result of the shooting, the hotel decided to cancel the reception as police were still searching for the gun. Upon learning about the cancellation the bride let out a “blood-curling” scream and has now vowed to sue the hotel for “millions” after her big day was ruined.
“We are planning to sue the Waldorf for the costs of the wedding and the emotional harm suffered by the bride and groom, whose dream wedding was destroyed for no reason whatsoever by Waldorf personnel.”It seems the bride and groom aren’t just planning to sue the hotel, they are also going after the man responsible for all the chaos.
“A suit is also contemplated against the shooter, whose recklessness created the havoc.”
What do you think about the lawsuit against the Waldorf Astoria? Did they cancel the wedding reception for “no reason whatsoever” or was the shooting due cause for the cancellation? What about the lawsuit against the shooter? Should he be held liable for the “emotional harm” the couple suffered from having their million-dollar reception cancelled?
