Posted on 07/30/2021 6:45:57 AM PDT by Blood of Tyrants
The insurance companies handling the bankruptcy of the former Remington Arms Company made a $33 million bid this week to escape a specious lawsuit leveled by families of Sandy Hook victims.
Remington’s proposed settlement would provide $3.66 million to relatives of each of the nine victims in the lawsuit, according to Reuters. Even if the families take the offer, any settlement in the case must first be approved by the judge overseeing Remington’s bankruptcy case in Alabama.
Big Green has been fighting this lawsuit for years. Families of nine of the victims of the 2012 massacre brought the case shortly after the incident, but the Connecticut Supreme Court did not rule until 2019 that Remington could not be held liable for selling its AR-type Bushmaster rifle the murderer used to kill 20 children and six adults.

So now the manufacturer has to know the intentions of every person in the country? This is the biggest bullshit ruling ever.
To bankrupt them in endless litigation.
To drive manufacturing out of business and start equating gun ownership as "mental illness".
Whose fault is it when an illegal occupier murders a legal citizen?
It sets a terrible precedent for them to settle this.
Unless there was truly some negligence on their side, but I can’t imagine what.
But I can understand them wanting to be through with it.
The problem is they won’t be. This will incite more lawsuits in the future.
Yes it will generate more lawsuits in the future. So the other insurers need to coalesce and help pay for these legal expenses to NOT settle.
But they won’t.
Trumps....because he didn’t finish the wall...At least according to that RINO in AZ that blocked the enforcement of the subpoena for the routers.
I have no doubt the MSM will twist it the story.
Is Betty Crocker also going to have to know the intentions of every person in the country? There are entirely too many obscenely overweight people in the aisles of the grocery stores I frequent.
So the 9 that sued will get 3.66M each, while the 18 that didn’t sue will get nothing. That’s fair.
This is SO wrong, on so many levels.
This is not good
Exactly! A horrible precedent.
Gun manufacturers, BOHICA. ? (never used that one before. Just shows how mad I am).
They might as well be the English back in 1776.
shoulda spent that on court costs, this will NOT end well...
Yes, and the next time I fall in the tub, I will pursue the porcelain manufacturer for brain injury. Unless I’m incompetent; in that case, my family will do it.
In Arizona our legislature passed a law that gun manufacturers have immunity here in Arizona from lawsuits from mass shootings.
End of company bankruptcy or reorganization?
“Some time before 9:30 a.m. EST on Friday, December 14, 2012, Lanza shot and killed his mother Nancy Lanza, aged 52, with a .22-caliber Savage Mark II rifle at their Newtown home.”
“Shortly after 9:35 a.m., armed with his mother’s Bushmaster XM15-E2S rifle and ten magazines with 30 rounds each, Lanza shot his way through a glass panel next to the locked front entrance doors of the school.”
The gun at issue wasn’t sold to the killer.
No one knows what compelled Adam Lanza; it’s all speculation. It’s as likely that his mother drove him to it. The
