Robbery... Result of LL negligence?

Posted by Steve on February 05, 2002 at 23:53:38:

About two weeks after my girlfriend and I moved into a new apartment, we were robbed of about $4000 worth of computer equipment. The robbers entered our apartment through a window that faces into an alley The alley ends in a locked door. However, a robber could easily climb into the alley from the street and any of our neighbors could enter the alley through their windows or by the fire escape. There are no bars on our windows and we realized, after the robbery, that the lock on the window is defective. Does the LL have a responsibility to put bars on ground floor windows or to maintain locks on windows? Should I seek restitution in court?
