    Attorney Brian Caplan said Tuesday that Grimmie's family will file a new complaint after a Florida judge dismissed the original lawsuit.

    The original lawsuit named tour promoter AEG Live and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Plaza Foundation, which owns the venue, where Grimmie was shot last summer.
