A new filing has been sent to the Connecticut Supreme Court in the lawsuit brought by 10 families of Sandy Hook victims against Remington. The gun maker is seeking to have the court deny an appeal by the families.
A trial court judge dismissed the wrongful death suit in October.
Federal law shields the gun industry from most lawsuits over criminal use of their products. Remington disagrees with negligent entrustment arguments.
Remington argues that the Sandy Hook families are trying to hold the gun maker liable for actions of a criminal, but note that the manufacturing, distribution and sale of the AR-15-style rifle used on 12-14 were all lawful.
