Jury Rules For Remington in Washington Lawsuit
The Peninsula Daily News is running an article about the failed lawsuit of Thomas D. Hull who was accidentally shot by his hunting partner with a Remington 700 bolt action rifle. The jury took about an hour to review the case before ruling in Remington's favor.
Thomas D. Hull Jr., had contended he was injured by a defective rifle that discharged inside his truck. Hull was wounded at about 5:30 p.m. Oct. 25, 2009, by a Remington 700 bolt-action rifle being unloaded by his hunting partner, Joseph Sotomayor, then 45, also of Port Angeles, according to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office. Hull was shot in the upper right thigh, Hull said Thursday.
