Have you every heard of a automobile manufacturer being successfully sued because they built a car that was used in a criminal act?
Of course you haven’t. Occasional attempts as this sort of suit are viewed as little more than impotent protests, and are typically tossed out by judges long before a case can go to trial.
That is hopefully the reality that a Connecticut law firm is giving to the families of 10 Sandy Hook victims who are dropping hints that they file a wrongful death case against Bushmaster.
The parents of 10 children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School have filed or soon will file notices in probate court that they plan to make wrongful death claims on their children’s behalf.
Sources said several families met over the weekend with lawyers from Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, a Bridgeport, Conn., law firm, to discuss a potential lawsuit against Bushmaster, the North Carolina-based manufacturer of the Bushmaster AR 15 that A___ L____* used to kill 20 first-graders and six adults on Dec. 14, 2012.
