Stone v. Pagourtzis


GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas – Everytown Law has been retained by the family of Sabika Aziz Sheikh, an exchange student murdered at Santa Fe High School on May 18, 2018. On November 28, 2018, Everytown filed a petition in intervention in Stone v. Pagourtzis, a case against the shooter’s parents for their negligent storage of firearms, without which, the student would not have been able to carry out the murder of ten of his fellow students and teachers. On June 12, 2019, Everytown filed an amended petition, adding claims against the shooter.

On March 4, 2020, Everytown Law filed an amended petition, adding negligence and conspiracy claims against Luckygunner (an online ammunition sales website), its founders, and two affiliated companies. The petition alleges that Luckygunner and its affiliates negligently and illegally sold and delivered ammunition to the underage shooter.

On May 1, 2020, Luckygunner and related defendants removed the lawsuit from state court to federal court. On June 1, 2020, Everytown filed a motion to remand the case to state court.

On December 7, 2020, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas sided with the plaintiffs and remanded the case to Texas state court.

Luckygunner and its co-defendants moved to dismiss. On March 18, 2021, the court denied LuckyGunner’s motion.

On April 13, 2021, Luckygunner and its co-defendants filed a petition of mandamus to the Court of Appeals for the Fourteenth District. The Court of Appeals for the Fourteenth District denied their mandamus petition. On June 3, 2021, Luckygunner and its co-defendants filed a petition of mandamus to the Supreme Court of Texas.

On February 18, 2022, the Texas Supreme Court denied the mandamus petition. The case is currently in discovery before the trial court.
