Remington asks Judge to dismiss wrongful death lawsuit

A Connecticut judge was asked this week by Remington Arms to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit against the gun maker brought by the families of nine killed at Sandy Hook School and an injured teacher.  In the motion filed this week, Remington says it does not qualify as the seller and didn't want the court to waste it's time or the two sides to waste their money. 

 

The lawsuit says Remington should have known the AR-15-style rifle was dangerous and meant for the military but sold it to the public anyway. 

 

Remington argues the lawsuit is barred by a 2005 federal law shielding gun manufacturers from most lawsuits over criminal use of their products.   Earlier, Remington filed a motion for the suit to be tossed out of court, but the judge set a trial date for 2018 and ordered both sides to exchange evidence.
