In 1996, Mark Merrill entered a clinic for compulsive gamblers and wrote to Trump Indiana, a casino in Gary, Indiana, asking that he be evicted if he ever entered to gamble. Merrill’s name appeared on Trump Indiana’s eviction list. Nonetheless, Merrill later gambled at the casino suffering substantial losses. In December 1998 and January 1999, Merrill robbed banks, apparently to cover his gambling losses.

Explain. The four-part negligence test that follows will help you resolve Merrill’s claim.
