Furrow`s August 1999 attack on the North Valley Jewish Community Center in California, where three boys, a teenage girl, and a woman were injured. The suit also sought damages for the murder of Joseph Ileto, a postal worker Furrow killed after his attack on the community center. Judge Collins` 37-page opinion held that the plaintiffs did not show a link between Furrows` actions and the marketing strategies of the gun makers being sued.
