Ari Scharg. a partner at litigation firm Edelson, was at a July 4th parade in Highland Park, Illinois, with his wife and two kids, when shots rang out. They ran and took shelter in a neighbor’s house. Ultimately, seven people died and 48 others were injured in a mass shooting at the parade that day.
In this episode, Law.com legal technology reporter Isha Marathe speaks with Scharg about the lawsuit his firm has filed on behalf of one of the Highland Park shooting victims against Smith & Wesson, the maker of the assault rifle used that day.
Scharg discusses how the lawsuit, which alleges Smith & Wesson deliberately targets its advertising to emotionally troubled young men, will show other plaintiffs attorneys “a way forward for how to hold gun companies accountable.”
