Brady Represents City of Gary, Indiana, in Landmark Suit Against Major Gun Manufacturers


Over twenty-four years ago, Brady Legal brought a landmark lawsuit on behalf of the City of Gary, Indiana, against major gun manufacturers such as Smith & Wesson, Beretta USA Corp, Glock and Hi Point as well as major sellers of crime guns in and around the city. The lawsuit aims to hold the gun industry, manufacturers, and dealers accountable for their negligent conduct that contributes to the criminal gun market. Despite the gun industry's many efforts to evade legal repercussions for their role in fueling the criminal gun market, Indiana’s highest courts have said the case has merit and should proceed to trial. The case is currently in the discovery phase, in which the parties turn over evidence.
