I admit that I missed this news originally due to all the Impeachment / Iran / Ukraine media saturation.

Nov 12, 2019.

https://www.npr.org/2019/11/12/778487920/supreme-court-allows-sandy-hook-families-case-against-remington-to-proceed

 

Connecticut State Police Detective Barbara J. Mattson holds a Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle, the same type of gun used in the Sandy Hook shooting, during a 2013 hearing in Hartford, Conn. The gun-maker Remington is being sued by the families of the victims.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Supreme Court has denied Remington Arms Co.'s bid to block a lawsuit filed by families of victims of the Sandy Hook school massacre. The families say Remington should be held liable, as the maker and promoter of the AR-15-style rifle used in the 2012 killings.

The court opted not to hear the gun-maker's appeal, in a decision that was announced Tuesday morning. The justices did not include any comment about the case, Remington Arms Co. v. Soto, as they turned it away.

Remington had appealed to the highest federal court after the Connecticut Supreme Court allowed the Sandy Hook lawsuit to proceed in March. In recent court filings, Remington says the case "presents a nationally important question" about U.S. gun laws — namely, how to interpret the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which grants broad immunity to gun-makers and dealers from prosecution over crimes committed with their products.


 

It will be interesting to see what happens after the Remington Arms Co. v. Soto case is decided.

If the standard becomes suing the manufactures of any item used as a weapon; say goodbye to cooking utensils, sporting equipment, all firearms, all archery related items, wrenches, anything sold at Home Improvement stores .... you get the message.

Automobile manufacturers could be sued for drunk drivers...

I think a class action lawsuit against public education for increasing public stupidity is in order.

Let's hit them where it hurts and increase the tarrifs and taxes on beauty products, anything labled pumpkin spice, and all soy based food products at least 1000%.

This is lesbian feminists of Berlin yelling "Alluha Akbar" into a megaphone stupid. Or Britain outlawing cutlery stupid. Or simply AOC stupid. South Korea coercing young male adults to date stupid. Istanbul Convention stupid. Not to say that there is a pattern of stupid emerging in the subverted and Feminism infested rich countries all around the globe. But there is one emerging - and forcefully.

 

This site has been a scam from the start. I am outta here.

Egad. That was a female? I thought that it was that famous musician Brian Setzer.

But seriously, I doubt that the extension of firearms liability would extend beyond the firearms industry. Liability extension laws are often narrowly tailored and most of the SCOTUS justices were chosen by Republican presidents, so the chances of extending liability beyond the firearms industry is doubtful.  That being said, justices don't need to worry about politics after appointment so they can vote anyway they like. Though all the judges that I've worked with were good ones, some judges can be notoriously capricious.

I think that the POTUS' idea to keep firearms out of the hands of mentally unstable people is a much better idea.  I don't know we'll ever get a truly workable law like that passed though Congress and implemented. I know that there can be huge concerns regarding the costs, standards, and implementation of psychological screening. Nevertheless, I still support his idea.  We also need to keep guns out of the hands of violent felons with prior convictions. I  recommend tough sentences for them if they're caught in possession of a firearm.

Yes the the idea is to shut down the manufactures. Glad you had some good experiences with judges but I never had a good experience. Every MSPB/EEOC/ or arbitrator I was ever in front of cared ZERO for the law and the facts.

I once was a party in a case where the plaintiff was a borderline and a lying bitch (it's called perjury). The arbitrator looked a lot like that state trooper, except that she was more masculine and hated men. She probably had a torn "I Bathe in Men's Tears" T shirt under her blazer. 

Ultimately, psychobitch didn't have a case even though the femdom dyke arbitrator was on her side. I still won in court.

@old-buck

Agreed Buck.  The response needs should be two fold, go after the ambulance chasing lawyers who keep advocating for civil suits against any and every perceived slight, second, put in place the consequences you mentioned.  Pay to Play, simple and sweet.

Yep, This is the face of the State of Connecticut, as selected by those in charge of the case.  Know your enemy.

Thanks for the analysis on this, once again, the U.S. news media is giving this topic zero air play or analysis.  This topic however has the potential to have greater long term implications than anything currently playing out per media.  Unless MGTower's request for having "the bomb" dropped comes to fruition.
