Maryland man files federal lawsuit against Seven Springs

Friday, Nov. 16, 2012, 10:38 a.m.
 

A Maryland man claims in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court that Seven Springs Mountain Resort knew its door locks were defective and had allowed unforced entries into guests' rooms before the March 6, 2011 incident in which a man entered his then 11-year-old daughter's room, picked her up out of her bed and took her to the bathroom.

The father, who was sleeping in the next room, told state police that he initially thought his daughter was having a nightmare when she described breaking free of the man and fleeing to her parents' room. Then someone tried the door handle on his room, and when he opened the door he saw Justin Louis Weber, 25, of Plum walking quickly away, police said.

Weber pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and interference with custody of a child and a Somerset County judge sentenced him in September to 6 months to one year and 11 months in jail, according to state court records.

A spokeswoman for the resort couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
