Who Is Leonardo Canton, Esq.?

There is a new lawsuit against Kent Security Services in Miami alleging that a woman slipped and injured herself due to a puddle of oil in a location where the company provided valet services, and the lawyer who has filed the suit is Leonardo Canton. In this lawsuit, Kent Security Services is accused of breaching its duty of care. I can't say anything about the merits of this case, though I found some interesting things online about this attorney.

Mr. Canton was in the news back in 2010 for filing a lawsuit seeking $60 million on behalf of Cuban doctors and medics who were allegedly forced to work against their will for the Venezuelan government in a supposed "oil for manpower" deal between dictator Fidel Castro and president Hugo Chavez. At the time, Mr. Canton seemed optimistic about the outcome. I am curious how this lawsuit went, since it seems to me, as a layman, that filing a lawsuit against a sovereign nation would present major challenges, especially in terms of getting compensated even assuming the legal decision goes in your favor.

It will also be interesting to see how his lawsuit goes against Kent Security Services and the Four Ambassadors Association.

Update: Here is the video we made on the lawsuit, which is clearly of public interest as it deals with public safety.
