Federal Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against Gander Mountain

Facebook

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed a $3.75 million lawsuit filed against sporting goods retailer Gander Mountain by the husband of a woman killed in the shooting rampage at a Binghamton civic organization four years ago.

Samir Muhammad Al-Salihi’s lawsuit filed in April 2011 alleged that the St. Paul, Minn.-based company’s employees were negligent in selling Jiverly Wong semi-automatic pistols and ammunition. Al-Salihi’s wife was among the 13 people Wong killed at the American Civic Association in Binghamton in 2009 before committing suicide.

The lawsuit alleged that Wong exhibited signs of being mentally unstable while purchasing the firearms, and that Gander Mountain should have been on notice that he was likely to use the guns to harm himself or others.

U.S. District Judge Norman Mordue dismissed the complaint in a 30-page decision issued Friday.
