Attorney Marc Bern in an Interview with Denver7

“Well, I think unfortunately, that it’s a little late,” said Marc Bern, one of the attorneys representing the victims suing Cinemark. “We had his deposition set up three times, it was canceled three times,” said Bern. “The last time, we were told it would be impossible because he was out of state in a, basically, undercover position through the penal system.”

“To be very frank, we didn’t expect him to testify,” said Bern. “Clearly, a man with 12 life sentences and 3,000-plus years has nothing to lose.”
