BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The lawsuit filed by a widower of an American Civic Association shooting victim against Gander Mountain has been moved to federal court.
The family of Layla Khalil is suing Gander Mountain for $3.75 million. Khalil's family says the company was negligent because they sold the weapons used in the ACA shootings to Jiverly Wong, despite his volatile behavior.
The lawsuit was originally filed in New York State Supreme Court, but Gander Mountain officials requested it be moved because federal law applies to the case.
A scheduling meeting with U.S. Magistrate Judge David Peebles is set for May 6th.
