The Louisiana Civil Code limit

The Louisiana Civil Code limits an innkeeper’s liability for stolen property to $500 and only covers cash, jewelry, rare art items, furs, cameras, and negotiable instruments. While staying at the New Orleans Hilton, Allen Chase was drugged by a woman he met at the hotel bar. He woke up the next morning to find that his gold watch, wallet, credit cards, passport, business papers, and camera were gone. As a result of the drug, Chase suffered health problems, which seriously affected his business. Believing that the hotel bartender had helped the woman who drugged him, Chase sued Hilton for negligence in the amount of $575,000. Who wins and why?
