Story: Sandy Hook Families' Lawsuit Against Gun Maker Dismissed
Story: The Newtown families' wrongful-death lawsuit against the maker of the AR-15 Bushmaster rifle used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre was dismissed by a judge, citing an embattled federal law that shields gun manufacturers from most lawsuits over criminal use of their products. Connecticut State Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis on Friday granted a motion by Remington Arms to strike the lawsuit by the families of nine children and adults killed and a teacher who survived the Dec. 14, 2012, school attack, in which a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators with a Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle made by Remington.
Huguely case will move forward after judge denies request for pause
After months of waiting for a federal judge in Maryland and hearing nothing, a Charlottesville judge denied a request to pause the wrongful death lawsuit against George Huguely V any longer. Attorneys for Sharon Love — the mother of the woman Huguely is convicted of killing — asked a judge in Charlottesville Circuit Court on Tuesday to once again extend the suspension of the $29.45 million wrongful death lawsuit. Love filed the suit after Huguely was convicted in 2012 of second-degree murder for the slaying of his girlfriend Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia women’s lacrosse player who was found dead in her apartment in May 2010. The now-28-year-old Huguely is currently serving a 23-year sentence at the Augusta Correctional Center for the slaying and has continued to fight his criminal conviction, even after the U.S. Supreme Court in October denied a request to review his case.
