Remington Arms is asking a Connecticut Superior Court yet again to stop a lawsuit against the company from going forward. The company is being sued for making the Bushmaster XM-15 rifle, an assault weapon used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. 

The families of more than a dozen victims of the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, will split $1.5 million under recently finalized settlements of lawsuits against the gunman's mother's estate.

A lawyer for several victims' families says the settlements were finalized Dec. 17. Details of the agreements were first announced in August.

A report released on Friday by Connecticut’s Office of the Child Advocate traced the mental health and history of Adam Lanza, the man who committed the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. It draws a narrative of years of missed opportunities, saying his mother and his educational team tried to accommodate his issues, not treat them. It claims Lanza didn’t get any mental health care after 2008, and that he grew up isolated, without the kind of socialization he should have received.

Peter Lanza is the father of Adam Lanza, the young Newtown Connecticut man who killed his mother, 20 children and six educators at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, and then himself.

Peter Lanza has avoided the press, but granted long interviews to writer Andrew Solomon last Fall. Solomon’s article on Peter Lanza is in this week’s New Yorker.

Andrew Solomon is the author of ‘Far from the Tree,’ which explores the relationships in families where children and parents are exceptionally different from each other. He also has a Ph.D. in psychology.
