Sandy Hook Plaintiffs Lose Bid to Stall Remington Bankruptcy

On Tuesday Judge Clifton Jessup Jr., of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Northern District of Alabama, ruled against a motion to delay Remington’s bankruptcy proceedings. The plaintiffs in the hearing—a group comprised of a survivor and families of the 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy—claimed the speed of the auction jeopardized their lawsuit against the gun manufacturer that alleges it should have never sold the Bushmaster and its marketing deliberately targeted, “…younger, at-risk males…, ” according to Fox Business news. They have until Sept. 1 to appeal this week’s decision.

If it goes unchallenged or withstands review, Remington’s assets will go on the auction block as early as Sept. 17. The sale will recover some of the $100 to $500 million it owes to creditors, which number between 1,000 and 5,000 companies and individuals, according to the bankruptcy filing. The Sandy Hook plaintiffs are not included in the bankruptcy protection paperwork filed by Remington.

Plaintiff’s Claim

CNBC reports the plaintiffs alleged the speed at which the bankruptcy was proceeding could, “prevent Remington from ever answering for its role in the wrongful marketing of the weapon and that marketing’s causal role in the devastating loss of life at Sandy Hook Elementary School.” Their attorney told the judge on Tuesday, “There won’t be, there simply can’t be, a full and fair process unless this high-speed train that we’re on slows down.” reports the judge arrived at this week’s decision because, “…the bankruptcy court was not the proper venue to resolve the claims by the families.” The Fox Business News story also indicates he expressed displeasure that the stalling motion would buy more time for the plaintiffs to scour disclosure documents related to a separate lawsuit filed in Connecticut against Remington.

Remington issued an official statement on it filing for bankruptcy protection late last month, and our story provides more detail.

Leupold SX-4 Pro Guide HD Spotting Scope Petersen’s Hunting Magazine Editor’s Choice

From Leupold

 Leupold & Stevens is pleased to announce that its SX-4 Pro Guide HD Spotting Scope has been named “Editor’s Choice” by Petersen’s Hunting in the magazine’s annual gear issue.

The editorial staff at Petersen’s Hunting selected the Leupold SX-4 Pro Guide HD 15-45x65mm as the top spotting scope for 2020, specifically calling out its low-light performance, reliability, and value.

“The SX-4 is compact and relatively light, making it portable for real world use,” the Petersen’s editors said in their review. “Waterproof and fogproof internals and HD glass provides for a capable optic in any conditions at a price that is within reach of many. At 15X this scope is great for range use, while 45X gives the user a clear view of all but the most distant animals.”

Built to take on the harshest conditions and perform all season long, the SX-4 Pro Guide HD spotting scope has found a home with hunters and shooters nationwide. You’ll see more in less light with Leupold’s proprietary Twilight Max HD Light Management System, while a generous, oversized eyebox, meanwhile, helps eliminate eye-strain and fatigue. Leupold has engineered it from the ground up to deliver unparalleled optical quality in its class.

The entire Pro Guide HD observational line has been tested in extreme climates, and guaranteed to provide the rugged performance that Leupold is known for. They are waterproof and fogproof, and shed dirt and water for clear, crisp images with a Guard-ion lens coating.

“The SX-4 is a spotting scope for nay hunter shooter that absolutely requires top-of-the-line performance and rugged reliability in the field,” said Zach Bird, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Thanks to the in-house optical engineering team that we have working right here every day in Beaverton, Ore., we’re able to bring our consumers the high-quality products they deserve, and we’re proud that the editors of Petersen’s Hunting recognize that.”
