Settlement reached in triple-murder lawsuit in Washington

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A wrongful death lawsuit involving the fatal shooting of three 19-year-old friends murdered at a Washington state house party in 2016 has reached a settlement. The Daily Herald reported that the lawsuit was filed in 2019 by David Bui, the brother of Anna Bui, one of the three murdered teens. The lawsuit claims shooter Allen Ivanov’s parents could have taken steps to prevent him from carrying out the shooting. Attorney Hanni Pichel argued there was no way they could have foreseen their son would carry out a shooting. The case was dismissed with the settlement agreement. Bui’s family attorney Erica Buckley did not disclose further details on the settlement.
