Des Moines Strip Club Death Case Goes to Jury

A wrongful death case brought against Midwest Hospitality Investments, a conglomerate that controls the Des Moines, Iowa exotic dance establishment, The Lumberyard, has moved into the jury selection phase. In 2006, 27-year-old Luca Pasa was stabbed to death in the club.

A subsequent wrongful death case brought by his girlfriend (also the mother of his 4-year-old son) contends that club personnel bore some of the responsibility for the attack, as they failed to confiscate a knife from Erik Gilge, the patron who murdered Pasa. Once the jury has been seated, lawyers expect for the presentation of the case to be concluded within several weeks’ time.
