A second lawsuit is starting this week for trial against a gun shop after a jury in October found the owners of the store were negligent in selling a gun used to injure two Milwaukee police officers.
A Wisconsin gun shop will pay $1 million to settle a lawsuit in which a jury found it negligently sold a gun used to injure two Milwaukee police officers, the store's attorney said.
The owners of a West Milwaukee gun shop will not be appealing the nearly $6 million, first-of-its-kind verdict a jury recently awarded to two police officers.
When Patrick Dunphy decided in 2010 to go to bat for two Milwaukee police officers who had been shot in their heads the year before, it scarcely occurred to him that he might play a part in rolling back laws that shield firearm sellers from liability for any harm that results from the misuse of their wares.
Jurors ordered a Wisconsin gun store to pay nearly $6 million on Tuesday in a lawsuit filed by two Milwaukee police officers who were shot and seriously wounded by a gun purchased at the store.
The trial over a civil lawsuit brought by a pair of seriously wounded police officers against a Wisconsin gun shop that they say has sold hundreds of weapons used in crimes is nearing its conclusion.
Two Milwaukee police officers are in court where they are taking on the gun store that sold a firearm to the man who shot them.
