Christina Grimmie’s family will face off against the company they believe could have saved her in court, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
Albert Grimmie and AEG Live are set to appear before a judge on May 23, according to Orange County, Fla. court documents obtained by Radar.
The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Plaza and AEG Live recently filed a Motion to Dismiss the suit, and the hour-long hearing will decide the matter.
Adam Levine, her mentor, offered to pay for the entire funeral shortly after the news broke.
Six months later, her dad Albert filed a lawsuit against the event organizer, AEG, and the owner of the Plaza Live Theater (where she was shot), claiming that they could have prevented Christina's death through better security.
The companies fired back that his claims were false, and that they are not at fault.
He pursued the wrongful death and negligence lawsuit regardless — and is still seeking financial compensation from the companies for what he called their “cost-cutting” security.
