St. Louis Lawsuit Against Gun Industry Dismissed On Issues Of "Logic And Fairness"
Monday, November 17, 2003
On November 7, Judge Emmett O`Brien said he found no basis for the city of St. Louis` claim against the gun industry seeking reimbursement for costs associated with gun-related injuries. He dismissed the lawsuit against gun distributors and trade organizations a month after he had thrown out similar charges against gun manufacturers.
Judge O`Brien wrote in his opinion that "issues of both logic and fairness" favored dismissing the case, which was filed in April 1999. He also said that such lawsuits would open "a floodgate to additional litigation."
