WI – GUN CRIME – Online gun marketplace Armslist again named in wrongful death case over Wisconsin homicide

A gun safety advocacy group returned to a Wisconsin court Thursday in another attempt to hold online firearms marketplace Armslist responsible for a homicide committed with a gun sold through the site. Sara Schmidt, 40, a mother of three, was fatally shot by her estranged husband, Robert Schmidt, 49, in Harrison, near Appleton, in 2018. He then killed himself. Her father, Richard Webber, the administrator of her estate, sued Armslist and its founder in federal court in Green Bay late Thursday for wrongful death, negligence, public nuisance and civil conspiracy. The suit asks that the court stop Armslist from operating like it does, and for unspecified damages to Schmidt’s estate. The estate is represented by Milwaukee’s Cannon & Dunphy, New York law firm Blank Rome, and Brady Legal, lawyers who work with Brady United, formerly known as the Brady Center for the Prevention of Gun Violence.   [full article]
