An Oregon trial court ruled that a lawsuit can proceed against a gun store and an online gun dealer for their role in selling guns used in a crime spree, in a case that is the first of its kind in Oregon. Multnomah County Circuit Judge Michael Greenlick denied the gun sellers’ motions to dismiss a case brought by the family of Kirsten Englund, who was killed in 2013 with one of the guns. The judge ruled that a federal gun industry protection law – the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act – does not prohibit the Englunds’ case. The lawsuit now proceeds to discovery.
