Dec. 17, 2018 – Senior Legal Analyst Time And A Lawsuit Over A School Shooting – Isn’t There Immunity Under The Law?

We know there are shootings that happen throughout the United States, all the time. This pathetic and inhuman fact has been the source of endless discussion and calls to action on our show – but – still we have no meaningful federal government action. Some states (guess which ones?) have added to their gun safety laws, but there is another option, another path. Returning to civil litigation is that option and instead of suing the gun manufacturers and dealers, who have broad immunity, how about another party? The law is central here, so today, when we go Beyond The Norm, it’s Senior Legal Analyst time and the parents of a teenage shooter are sued, civilly, for damages after their son shoots people in school.
