McNicholas & McNicholas LLP Obtains $6.6M Settlement for Shooting Victims’ Families in Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Partner Patrick McNicholas and David Angeloff along with Todd Becker obtained a $6.6 million settlement on behalf of the families of three people murdered in a killing spree, against a property owner and a property management company. A substantial amount of evidence made it clear that the defendants were informed that the shooter posed a serious threat of violence to roommates. Despite this evidence, the defendants failed to ensure the safety of their residents. Over the course of three years, they took no actions to address any of the complaints about the shooter, and shuffled him from roommate to roommate. In 2014, he murdered his two roommates and their friend, before going on a shooting spree that left three dead.
