Governor Lamont Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Allow Sandy Hook Families to Proceed With Lawsuit

   
   

Governor Ned Lamont today released the following statement regarding the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to allow a survivor and relatives of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to pursue their lawsuit against the maker of the rifle used in the attacks:

“Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Sandy Hook families will have their day in court—a day to make their voices heard and a day to ensure that no other family has to endure the grief they have faced. We have seen countless lives lost and senseless devastation in our communities as a result of this weapon’s use. Today may not bring full closure for those impacted, but it is a step toward progress in their fight for justice. However, we still need a moment of action in Washington to bring an end to the mass shootings that have become an everyday tragedy for our nation.”
