Remington, the gun maker being sued by families who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook shooting, is seeking school records for some of the first-graders killed in the massacre, according to court filings in the landmark wrongful death lawsuit. Remington’s request for information on five students and four teachers was called an “affront” against the families, but it is routine to gather all such records in a court case, especially when there is great controversy surrounding this case. Twenty children and six faculty members were killed on December 14, 2012. Josh Koskoff, the attorney representing nine families of victims, filed a motion to seal the documents, which include application and admission paperwork, transcripts and disciplinary records. Koskoff said, “the only relevant part of their attendance records is that they were at their desks on December 14, 2012.” -GEG

Remington has filed subpoenas to obtain report cards, attendance lists and other academic records for five of the students who were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. on Dec. 14, 2012. A total of 20 children and six faculty members were killed.

The nation’s oldest gun manufacturer also asked the Newtown Public School District to provide employment files of four educators who died in the shooting. The five students and four educators are part of a long-running wrongful death suit against Remington over its marketing practices.

Calling the subpoenas an invasion of privacy, Josh Koskoff, the attorney representing nine families of victims, filed a motion on Thursday to seal the documents, which include application and admission paperwork, transcripts and disciplinary records.

A legal source familiar with the case, who was not authorized to speak about the pending litigation, told TIME that it is routine in wrongful death lawsuits for the defense team to subpoena education and medical records to determine damages.

I don’t think Remington will succeed since the entire event was fabricated. The government and all parties have actively and maliciously supported the lies since day one and will never back down. Corrupt judges will rule in favor of the fake victims and nothing will change.

What a disgustingly sick joke! I MUST give my two cents’ worth please: There will not be any student-teacher info made available, since many others out there know that some kids were NOT ‘students’ in the same way that some adults were NOT ‘teachers’. Guns DON’T kill people, PEOPLE kill people. Lay a gun down and that’s where it will stay until it rots away. And DO NOT think smashing down the Constitutional 2nd Amendment will bring about ‘safety’! Violent criminals WILL NEVER relinquish ‘their’ handguns…that effort is ONLY to take away all protection of honest & lawful gun owners use… Read more »
