Second $50M lawsuit filed against Walmart after mass shooting
CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WWBT) - A second Walmart employee has filed a $50 million lawsuit against the company following the mass shooting in Chesapeake.
WAVY reports the lawsuit was filed on behalf of James Kelly - who began working at the store as an overnight stocking clerk on Aug. 1 of this year.
Both lawsuits claim employees had alerted Walmart to Bing’s disturbing behavior - adding that he was “known for being a mean and cruel supervisor.”
One attorney says the lawsuits may be a challenge to win because the employees will have to prove Walmart knew the shooter was a liability and continued to employ him.
