California appeals court reinstates product liability suit against Glock.


In light of the recent attention to Gun violence and safety the case below could have significant ramifications

The AP (7/26) reports, “A California appeals court has reinstated a now-retired paralyzed Los Angeles police officer’s product liability lawsuit against gun manufacturer Glock.” The retired officer, Enrique Chavez, “was paralyzed from the waist down when his 3-year-old son accidentally shot him with his service pistol,” and the lawsuit claims that the .45-caliber Glock 21 pistol does not have adequate safeguards to prevent accidental discharge. According to the AP, “a Los Angeles judge dismissed the suit two years ago, saying a Police Department review of the gun’s design found the Glock’s advantages outweighed any inherent risks.”
