    Many states have passed laws preventing this from happening and it should be a law everywhere. This is nonsense.

    He should have not stopped shooting until he was dead. Dead men can't sue.

    Except it was his family that filed the lawsuit on his behalf.
    There are many aspects of this that piss me off, including the fact that the family is going to spend little to nothing to drag the home owner into court over it. They will have nothing to lose but some time, nor will they bother to pay any legal fees and court costs if they lose. The homeowner, on the other hand, stands to lose everything he has ever worked for.

    I wonder how criminals and their families would feel if their victims started suing first. In this case, in addition to the medical bills, the home owner should try to recover the cost of the bullets he was forced to use in defending himself.
