But that still hardly seems fair. That's like saying the theater is a bit guilty. If the theater was found not liable, then it's not liable and shouldn't be forced to pay legal fees. Suing someone is a gamble. You have to be willing to part with your legal costs if you bring a law suit. I understand people feeling sad for these families, but the theater wasn't at fault and shouldn't have to pay legal fees on top of the losses it probably already accrued due to this horrific incident.
