The case of the day is Howe v. Romarm S.A. (D. Vt. 2017). The plaintiffs were victims of a 2010 shooting in Washington, or in one case, the representative of the estate of a victim. One of the victims was killed, the other two were injured. The gun allegedly used in the shooting was a WASR-10 semi-automatic, manufactured by Romarm. Romarm is an instrumentality of the Romanian government. The plaintiff sued Romarm under the District of Columbia Assault Weapons Manufacturing Strict Liability Act. Romarm moved to dismiss for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction, citing the FSIA.
