The international hotel had a faulty lock on my hotel guest-room door. Unbeknownst to me, this meant that my guest-room door, while completely closed and securely shut, nonetheless permitted access from the hallway. As a result, an intruder entered my room in the middle of the night. In defending myself from the intruder, I suffered considerable physical and emotional injuries. I was transported by ambulance from the hotel to a hospital in the European country for treatment and have received numerous medical bills at my US address. The hotel is not being proactive in helping me. If I sue the hotel, which does have many operations in the US, can I file a tort action against the parent corporation in Federal Court in the US (preferably no. dist. of Calif.)? Kindly advise. Thank you.
