CT Supreme Court to consider appeal in previously dismissed lawsuit against gun maker related to shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary

Almost two years ago, I reported that the families of nine of the 26 people killed two years ago at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor and seller of the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle used in the shooting. See here and here.

Back in October, however, several sources the case was dismissed.  NPR has more details on the story here.  Also, Politico has the story here.

Now comes news that the Connecticut Supreme Court has accepted an appeal. NPR has the story, although there are very few details.
