William D. Norris, the owner of the Remington's Hunt Club in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and several limited liability companies he owns have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Norris estimates that he owes between $10 million and $50 million to various creditors, according to the Hattiesburg American. The hunt club has been the scene of at least four shootings involving people since November, some of which have resulted in a lawsuit. Remington's is also temporarily closed at the moment because of these acts of violence - a hearing to determine whether it should be permanently shut down was recently canceled because of Norris' bankruptcy filing, according to WDAM.
Martez Smith, a college student who was allegedly shot in the club's parking lot, sued its owners for $87 million, according to the news source. Billy Ray Moffett, another shooting victim, seeks $42 million in damages from the club. In both cases, the plaintiffs reportedly allege that the club and its management did not provide adequate security forces on the premises.
