"Connecticut Judge Dismisses Newtown Lawsuit Against Gun Maker" [View all]

The Newtown families lawsuit trying to hold gun companies responsible for their loved ones' deaths was thrown out by a Connecticut judge, according to court documents.

Gunmaker Remington Arms was being sued by families of children and adults killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre.

In June, a lawyer for Madison, North Carolina-based Remington Arms asked a Connecticut judge to dismiss the lawsuit.

On Friday, Superior Court Judege Barbara Bellis granted the motion to strike the lawsuit by the families of nine children and adults killed and a teacher who survived the attack.

The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act was cited by the judge as the reason to dismiss the case. The plaintiffs plan to appeal.
