Accent Signage Victim's Family Seeks Permission to Go Forward with Lawsuit
The family of one of the victims of a mass shooting in Minneapolis was in court Monday seeking a judge's permission to go forward with a wrongful death lawsuit.
Jacob Beneke and five others were killed at Accent Signage Systems in September by employee Andrew Engeldinger.
Beneke's relatives are suing, arguing Accent should have known Engeldinger would get violent when the company fired him that day.
Accent Signage argues the lawsuit is barred by workers compensation law and should be thrown out.
Beneke's widow and young son are already receiving workers comp benefits.
The judge has not yet ruled.
