Siliana Gaspard, widow of the late Gaspard, reportedly filed a lawsuit on December 21st against the state of California and city of Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles Daily News.
It was reported that the lawsuit claims that negligence was committed by local government officials over the dangerous condition of public property, Venice Beach, in the death of Gaspard.
The lawsuit reportedly alleges that there were a lack of warning signs informing the public of the dangers of swimming in the area that Shad and his son were located in at the time. It is also being alleged that the lifeguards on duty at the scene were both understaffed and not properly trained.
Siliana Gaspard is currently asking for an unspecified monetary amount in damages and burial costs.
