    I heard on the radio this morning that the lawsuit against the maker of Raven handguns has been dismissed. But I can't find it on any news websites. Did anyone else hear of this? Or can you point me to a link with the story?

    The Raven was a .25 caliber handgun made by Valor Corp. (the company in the lawsuit). It is one of the so-called "Saturday night specials"... very cheaply made.

    Raven's are the Saturday Night Special of today, kind of like the Rhom's were of the late 50's and 60's.

    Valor was just the distributor of the gun, The gun was produced by a family conglomerate in PRC(Ka). They produced the Raven, Jennings, Davis and then had somethiong to do with the Sedco, the last issue of the Raven. I think some of the Davis guns are still being produced..

    Hmm, I did not know that. I thought the suit against Valor Corp. was over the design of the gun (i.e. not having the proper safety features and blah blah blah). How could they sue Valor Corp. if they did not manufacture it?

    Raven went "toes up" a while ago. The company was liquidated and had no assets, so they sued Valor, who sold the gun.

    Typical. If you can't sue the guy who you really want to sue, then keep looking until you find someone you CAN sue.

    That is the Hand Grenade theory of today's litigious society. Throw out a lawsuit and serve everyone you can remotely connect as defendants and see what you hit..
