Judge dismisses lawsuit filed by husband of woman killed in Binghamton, NY shooting rampage

A judge has dismissed a $3.75 million lawsuit filed against a sporting goods retailer by the husband of a woman killed in a Binghamton, N.Y., shooting rampage four years ago.

Samir Muhammad Al-Salihi's lawsuit filed in April 2011 alleged that employees of St. Paul, Minn.-based Gander Mountain were negligent in selling Jiverly Wong semi-automatic pistols and ammunition. Al-Salihi's wife was among the 13 people Wong killed at a civic association in 2009 before committing suicide.

The lawsuit alleged that Wong exhibited signs of being mentally unstable while purchasing the firearms, and that Gander Mountain should have known that he was likely to use the guns to harm himself or others.

U.S. District Judge Norman Mordue dismissed the complaint Friday, saying there was no evidence Gander Mountain knew Wong posed a risk.
