Jury Selection continues in Badger Gun Lawsuit
Milwaukee Police Officers, Bryan Norberg and Graham Kunisch filed the lawsuit in 2010, shortly after they were both shot point blank in the face, while confronting a criminal.
The officers claimed the suspect shot them with a gun purchased at Badger Guns, a shop in West Milwaukee that's known as having lax background checks.
Six officers were hurt between 2007 and 2009 with guns purchased from the store. A side from this case two additional officers have sued badger guns.
In this case, the gun was bought by one person at Badger Guns and then given to the shooter.
The store had its license taken away after the lawsuit was filed, but the officers are suing the former owners for negligence.
The plaintiffs allege that Badger Guns negligently and illegally sold the gu in the shooting and they seek damages from Badger Guns and others for the personal injuries they received in the shooting. The defendant, Badger Guns denies the plaintiff’s allegations.
Jury selection is expected to continue into tomorrow. The judge said the case could take three weeks to wrap up once it starts.
