Lawsuit against Milwaukee gun shop heads to court Monday
After almost five years of legal back and forth, the lawsuit against Badger Guns in Milwaukee is moving forward this morning. Two men, a current and a former Milwaukee Police officer, are suing the gun shop for their part in getting guns in the hands of criminals...
This lawsuit was filed shortly after Officer Bryan Norberg and former officer Graham Kunish were shot while confronting a criminal back in 2009.
The officers claimed the suspect shot them with a gun purchased at Badger Guns, a shop that's consistently identified as one of the nation's leading sources of so-called crime guns. The store had its license taken away after the lawsuit was filed, but the officers are suing the former owners for negligence.
Six officers were hurt between 2007 and 2009 with guns purchased from the store. The case was pushed back after a national gun control group posted information online that was inadmissible. Aside from this case-- two additional officers have sued Badger Guns. That case will be heard at a later date.
The trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the Milwaukee County Courthouse.
