|IN: Self-Defense Shooters Would Be Protected From Lengthy Civil Lawsuits With New Bill|
Submitted by: David Williamson
A house bill that's been introduced in the state legislature would protect Hoosiers who shoot someone in self defense and cleared of criminal wrongdoing from lengthy civil lawsuits. State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) has introduced HB 1284, which would require a judge to decide early during the pre-trial process to decide whether a civil lawsuit brought on by an individual or family of someone who has died from the result of a shooting where the defendant was found justified in using deadly force.

|"If I use force that's justified under the statute, [and] I'm not ever prosecuted much less convicted of a crime, why should I get sued over that?" says Relford.|
Liberal response: "Butbutbut....!!!??? *sputter, stumble, mutter*"
