Brooklyn federal judge Jack Weinstein has dismissed the NAACP’s lawsuit against the firearms industry. The 175 page opinion found that NAACP had not proven that it had a right to sue for public nuisance, because the NAACP failed “to show that its harm was different in kind from that suffered by other persons in New York.” Judge Weinstein did find that the firearms companies had created a public nuisance by, in his view, failing to take sufficient steps to prevent guns from being used by criminals.
