Club Q shooting victims file notices to sue El Paso County

The Gazette
June 5, 2023

Several victims of the Club Q shooting in Colorado Springs and some of their family members have notified El Paso County officials they intend to file lawsuits, claiming the Sheriff's Office "played a role" in the violence after it failed to invoke Colorado's red flag gun law against the alleged shooter during an earlier 2021 bomb threat.

In nine notices of claim filed with the county in mid-May, attorneys claim the violence that erupted at the popular LGBTQIA+ club on North Academy Boulevard just before midnight on Nov. 19 "could have been entirely avoided had the El Paso County sheriff utilized the Colorado 'red flag' law."

A notice of claim is not a lawsuit, but it informs a party that it may be liable for a claim for damages.
