Christina Grimmie's family files lawsuit over wrongful death

Back in June, 'The Voice' contestant Christina Grimmie was murdered while meeting with fans after a performance at The Plaza Live in Orlando and it has now emerged that her relatives are suing AEG Live to seek justice for her untimely death. 

Gunman Kevin Loibl fatally shot the 22-year-old on June 10 and now her family has filed a lawsuit in Florida. Along with AEG Live, they have also named The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Plaza Foundation and the security firm that was hired for the event in the lawsuit. 

Grimmie's mother, father and brother have said that the aforementioned companies are responsible for her wrongful death and the paperwork reads: "The death of Christina was caused by the negligent and culpable conduct of the defendants who failed to provide adequate security measures to protect Christina at the Plaza Live Theater on June 10, 2016."

A date for the trial has not yet been set.
