Scott Hapgood and his family filed a lawsuit Monday against the owner of the Caribbean resort where Hapgood fought against a hotel employee he said assaulted and tried to rob him last April in front of his children, Hapgood’s public relations firm announced. Hapgood, charged with manslaughter in the death of the Anguila hotel employee, Kenny Mitchel, has remained in the United States, refusing to return to the island for pretrial court hearings. He has said it would be too dangerous for him to return to Anguilla, a British territory, given numerous anonymous threats against him and a lack of assurances from Anguilan authorities that he would be protected. Anguillan authorities have said they would file an arrest warrant for failure to appear in court. Extradition between the United States and the United Kingdom involves approval from both a federal judge and the U.S. Secretary of State.
