The widow of a man shot in a Florida movie theater in 2014 is suing the theater where the shooting took place and one of its employees. She is seeking $15,000 in damages related to physical, economic and psychological damage after the incident, which started over the use of a cellphone. The suit claims that Cobb Theaters and an employee at the Wesley Chapel location failed to uphold its gun ban at the time of the incident.
The woman's husband was shot and killed by a 73-year-old man while the woman was shot in the hand. He is currently facing second-degree murder charges, but plans to invoke the state's "stand your ground" law as a defense. A hearing in April or May 2016 may determine if the charge will be dropped.
