Employer Liability for Wrongful Death

An Illinois Appellate Court recently reversed the dismissal of a wrongful death claim against an employer for failure to monitor an employee's email.  A link to the article is here.  The argument has that the failure to follow the company's own internal policy resulted in the deaths of several people to whom threats had been made from a work computer.  Pretty creative and arguably negligence per se since they violated their own policies.
