Gun maker Remington can be sued over how it marketed the Bushmaster rifle used to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, a divided Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Thursday.Remington has denied wrongdoing and previously insisted it can't be sued under the federal law that shields gun manufacturers from liability in most cases when their products are used in crimes.

The Connecticut Supreme Court's ruling on Thursday means that the families' argument that Remington "negligently entrusted" to civilians the AR-15-style rifle used by the Sandy Hook massacre shooter can be decided by a jury. The jury will weigh that argument against Remington's defense that the company is protected by a federal law that shields gun makers from liability when firearms are misused. "It falls to a jury to decide whether the promotional schemes alleged in the present case rise to the level of illegal trade practices and whether fault for the tragedy can be laid at their feet," part of the ruling reads. The Supreme Court decision comes three years after a massacre survivor and nine families who lost loved ones in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook School brought the lawsuit against Remington in Bridgeport Superior Court. In January 2015, the families of 10 Sandy Hook victims filed the suit against the gunmaker, Remington Outdoor Co.; the dealer, CamfourInc. and the company that owned the gun store, Riverview Sales, where Adam Lanza's mother bought the assault rifle he used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School slayings. They claimed the gunmaker and sellers knew civilians were unfit to operate the assault rifle, and yet they continued selling it. The lawsuit sought to use a small window for holding companies accountable, including instances of so-called negligent entrustment, in which a gun is carelessly given or sold to a person posing a high risk of misusing it. ... <p><a href="http://glbnews.com/url.html?p=https://www.newstimes.com/local/article/State-Supreme-Court-to-release-decision-on-Sandy-13687825.php" target="_blank"
