Scott Family Drops Lawsuit Against Costco
The family of Erik Scott, the man shot and killed by police at the Costco in Summerlin, have dropped their lawsuit against the store.
According to the family attorney Ross Goodman, the lawsuit against Costco and the store’s security guard, Shai Lierly, has been voluntarily dismissed.
Scott was at the Costco in July when Las Vegas police officers shot him. The officer’s actions were ruled justified by a coroner’s inquest.
While the lawsuit against Costco and Lierly have been dropped, Goodman says the family is still pursuing their federal civil suit against Metro Police and Sheriff Doug Gillespie.
