    This is why you make sure the son of a gun is dead. You shoot somebody in the face and then sue them for returning the favor? Really? This flies in court? Disgusting.

    If I were the home owner, as the article states, I'd counter-sue too. But it would be the gun and ammo manufacturer for their defective product!

    Glad to see the home owner survived. He looks good for a 90yr old guy that was shot in the face. California....what a joke!! Good-Luck to you Mr. Leone!!

    The invader took 3 hits from a .357 and got out under his own power. I wonder if he had .38's in there?

    Only way I can see this turn bad for him is the fact the guy pleaded for his life before he shot. They could say he could have let him go. Which I think is BS! IMO I think anyone convicted or pleads guilty to a crime should have no right to sue anyone during the time frame of the crime. I think you should lose any right you may have during the time your committing a crime!

    Re: Armed Burglar Sues Homeowner For Shooting

    You're ignoring one very important part...

    This is a civil trial, not criminal. Most of the rules and laws go out the window. He isn't being tried based on CA's castle doctrine, he is being sued based on the belief that the old man willfully caused damage to the burglar...

    Does that make it right? No... but it does make it different.

    That is civil court system. Only 7 of 12 need to agree with the dirt bag and you will have to pay.

    PS advice from the new guy "never put your intentions of what you would do in writing on web, a lawyer will find it"

    I expect this will cost the homeowner a lot of money to defend this unmeritorious lawsuit.
    That's why you counter sue the plaintiff for legal fees.

    I had a LEO here in GA tell me that during a home invasion..shoot to "eliminate" aka "kill" not to injure because the Home Invader could then turn around and sue you. I thought you have to be kidding me...someone breaks into my home and threatens the safety of wife/kids/yourself...you use deadly force that happen not to be to deadly..and then you get served papers...wow.. So he stated..basically "handle your business" so that papers can't be filed..

    This is why my next home defense weapon will be a phaser. The BG just disintegrates and turns into a small pile of ash. No mess, no lawyers, no problem. ; )
