IN – COURTS – Long-running Gary gun lawsuit may go to trial after Indiana Supreme Court declines to intervene

IN – COURTS – Long-running Gary gun lawsuit may go to trial after Indiana Supreme Court declines to intervene long-running lawsuit seeking to hold 10 gun manufacturers financially responsible for the costs of 1990s gun violence in the city of Gary could proceed to trial after the Indiana Supreme Court declined Tuesday to intervene in the case. By a 4-1 margin, the high court’s justices refused to grant the gun manufacturers’ request for transfer, thereby leaving intact a May 23 Court of Appeals ruling that revived the case — notwithstanding a 2015 state law aimed at halting it. Justice Geoffrey Slaughter, a Crown Point native, was the sole justice voting to grant transfer, which would have vacated the Court of Appeals decision. Gary alleges the gun manufacturers engaged in unlawful sales and marketing practices that contributed to increased crime in Gary during the late 1990s, and caused the city to incur significant costs for the resulting criminal investigations and prosecutions, according to court records. The case has lingered in Indiana’s court system since 1999 as various state and federal laws seemingly designed to shelter the gun manufacturers from civil liability were found by Hoosier judges to be inapplicable to Gary’s claims. In 2015, the Republican-controlled Indiana General Assembly sought to do away with the city’s case once and for all by enacting a statute, retroactive to 1999, barring lawsuits against gun manufacturers relating to the lawful design, manufacture, marketing or sale of a firearm, or the unlawful misuse of a firearm by a third party.  [full article]
