Judge Orders El Paso Wal-Mart, Site of August Shooting Spree, to Allow Inspection of Store

September 26, 2019 Houston, TX: An El Paso District Court Judge has ruled Wal-Mart must allow Plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against them this month to enter the store for the purposes of inspecting, measuring, diagramming, scanning, videoing, and photographing the premises.

Judge Sergio Enriquez of the 448th District Court in El Paso also found that a temporary restraining order was necessary to prevent the Wal-Mart Defendants from discarding, altering, or destroying evidence. Wal-Mart had vigorously opposed any attempts to enter and inspect the store before extensive renovations could be completed.

The lawsuit, filed earlier this month on behalf of shooting victims Jessica and Guillermo Garcia, alleges that despite years of rampant crime at its stores, Wal-Mart did not take necessary and reasonable steps to protect their customers on the day of the shooting, August 3, 2019.  As a result, a gunman killed 22 people and injured 22 others at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in El Paso, Texas.
