Marianne Payne, the mother of Joe Loudon, the 16-year-old Miramonte student who died at a party in Orinda in April, has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against several people involved in the party that her son died at.
Patrick and Alexandra Gabrielli were the kids responsible for organizing the party at the home of their parents. Payne has named both of the Gabriellis, as well as their parents, Scott and Isabel Hamilton, in the lawsuit. Another teenager who purchased alcohol for the party with a fake ID was also named in the lawsuit.
Although the suit seeks an unspecified monetary amount, it does claim that it is for economic damages related to the burial of Loudon and that Payne is suffering from the lack of comfort, moral and financial support from her son.
Loudon’s father declined to be a part of the lawsuit.
