Remington says court should approve rifle settlement even if gun owners may be suspicious


Quote
Lawsuits have linked the alleged defect to dozens of deaths and hundreds of serious injuries. Remington has steadfastly denied the allegations. The company maintains that the guns are safe and free of defects, and blames all of the incidents on user errors.

But two Model 700 owners a sheriff's deputy in Louisiana and an attorney in Oklahoma appealed the ruling to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Lewis Frost and Richard Denney accuse Remington of deliberately downplaying the risk from the guns in order to suppress claims under the settlement. They argue that the small number of claims only about 22,000 as of February proves the company has not done enough to notify the public.
