Lawsuit Thrown Out Against Gander Mountain Regarding ACA Shooting
9/24/2013 (Updated 8:13:00 PM)A U.S. district court judge has thrown out a lawsuit stemming from the ACA shootings in 2009.
Samir Muhammad Al-Salihi, whose wife was killed in the shootings, was seeking $3.75 million dollars from Gander Mountain, saying shooter Jiverly Wong was mentally unstable and that the store was negligent in selling him weapons.
The judge ruled there was no evidence Gander Mountain knew or should have known that Wong posed an unreasonable risk of harm to himself or others, noting that Wong was granted a firearms permit in 1997 and in the twelve-year interim leading up to the shooting no criminal or other complaints about Wong were ever received.
