Casinos have lots of tricks to get you to spend money. They don't have clocks, or windows. They overwhelm your senses with lights, beeps and sirens. They make everything red, and play repetitive melodies on a loop to give you the trance-like sense of being in a womb. And they ply you with a lot of alcohol.

But if you get incredibly drunk on that alcohol, and shatter a glass that slices your arm, ultimately killing you from extreme blood loss, are the casino employees responsible?

Three weeks ago, Ila Parish filed a lawsuit against Carnival Corp., reports The Southeast Texas Record, for negligence by "fostering a party atmosphere," and failing to properly train its staff.
