Lawsuit Against Orlando Venue Where Christina Grimmie Was Killed Advances

Almost two years since music star Christina Grimmie's unfortunate death, the pop singer's family is moving forward with their lawsuit against AEG Live and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, the owner of the Orlando venue. 

A judge on Friday rejected the defendants' motions to dismiss the suit, allowing the Grimmie family's case to move forward, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.

According to THR, the family claims that AEG and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra "failed to take adequate security measures to ensure the safety of the performers and the attendees at the concert venue," resulting in the death of their daughter.

Named Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star, Grimmie was fatally shot after a show at AEG Live in 2016.

The late star of NBC's The Voice was the opening act and was shot three times during a meet and greet with fans after the set. 

Authorities reported that the shooter was infatuated with the 22-year-old and took his own life.
