A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed by the family of a convenience store clerk killed in a robbery. The suit has been filed against the owners of the convenience store.
On January 31, 2008, 40-year-old Abdul H. Meje was fatally wounded during a robbery at a Galveston, Texas, Citgo.
The wrongful death lawsuit comes just six months after the gunman, 35-year-old Robert Lee Stevens, was sentenced to life in prison. Stevens reached a plea agreement with the county’s district attorney’s office that spared him from a capital murder trial and potential death sentence.
In their Texas wrongful death lawsuit, Meje’s relatives accuse ABHI Enterprises of negligence. According to the lawsuit, the company failed to provide adequate security to ensure the safety of Meje. There was, the lawsuit states, a reasonably foreseeable risk of a violent crime occurring on the premises.
The family has requested a jury trial, and damages including pain and suffering, medical expenses, funeral costs, mental anguish, loss of support, care and future inheritance are being sought.
