In Connecticut, lawyers representing weapons manufacturer Remington Arms told a state judge on Monday to dismiss a lawsuit that would force them to present their marketing strategies in a public court. That lawsuit was filed by families of victims killed with a military-style assault rifle made by Remington in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting.
