Judge Reprimands Brady Campaign For Frivolous Lawsuits Against Ammo Companies
According to Controversial Times, a lawsuit against Lucky Gunner and other online ammo sellers has been dismissed, with prejudice.
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence sued the ammo companies alleging that they played a role in the the 2012 Aurora theater shooting by legally selling ammunition to James Holmes.
That didn’t play with the judge who shot down the lawsuit and very publicly called out the Brady Campaign in his opinion, which reads:
It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center, and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants into the Colorado court where the prosecution of James Holmes was proceeding appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order which counsel should have known would be outside the authority of this court.
The judge also awarded over $200,000 in legal fees and damages to the ammo companies in question.
Lucky Gunner has pledged to donate the entire amount they have coming, over $110,000 to various Second Amendment organizations.
That’s right, the Brady Campaign could end essentially writing a six figure check to the NRA.
