On Wednesday, July 30, 2014, a Brazos County jury awarded $27 Million to the parents of two Blinn College students. The parents of the Blinn College students filed a wrongful death lawsuit against McDonalds.
The Blinn students were assaulted in the McDonald’s parking lot on University Drive in Brazos County. There was testimony and evidence that there had been 20-plus incidents police responded to at the McDonalds between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. on the weekends in the 11 months leading up to the Blinn students being attacked. Plaintiffs’ attorneys argued that there was a pattern of violence at the McDonalds and there was a lack of action taken by company employees. The Blinn students died after they were in a car accident on the way to the hospital after being assaulted at the McDonalds.
