February 19, 2022 – Families who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook mass shooting were awarded 72 million dollars this week by insurers of the company that made the gun used in the attack. Gun control advocates say the landmark case could act as a blueprint for other cases. Federal law largely shields gunmakers from any liability relating to shootings, however they can be sued for violating Federal and state laws relating to how they market their products. Rachel Fiset says this case is a game changer, “This will provide a blue print for other plaintiffs to go after gunmakers under deceptive practices.”
