Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, a person or entity is not legally liable for the criminal actions of a third party (such as this assault).
That's likely what you're being told. However, it is POSSIBLE to sue for negligent security IF there wasn't adequate security provided or if the security present didn't respond in a reasonable manner, etc. This is a more difficult argument to make, but it is possible and is certainly available to your husband in this circumstance.
