Judge Fred S. Silverman has dismissed Wilmington`s lawsuit against the gun industry, saying the city cannot recover police overtime and other costs from firearms manufacturers. Judge Fred S. Silverman said reducing handgun violence in Wilmington was a "laudable ulterior motive" for filing the suit, but he said the court system was not the solution. "Handgun violence is a scourge," he said. "But as much as the court would support efforts to reduce the problem, the court will not twist a jury trial involving municipal costs into a wildly expensive referendum on gun control."
