Any shyster that takes this one needs to have their law license pulled. Any JUDGE that allows it to proceed needs to be disbarred. Nuff said.

a judge doesn't [make that a trial judge] decide what goes on his docket ..........

a civil judge more in likely has to hear a case , as the expression goes every one has their day in court

Where I live the burglar would probably have left the house in a bag.

If not, well, we have one of the strongest Castle laws in the country.

Probably, maybe not.

Likely, still a stretch.

Remotely, more like it.

Multiple load magazines are a "sharpshooter's" friend.

Nonetheless - in this case the shooter and the perp are lucky to be alive.

The burglur was shot three times with a .357 and survived??
Even if he was shot in the arms or the legs he lost some serious meat.
Never the less, I'm happy for the old man!!
Good Job!!

If the 90 year old had shot and killed the burglar, the burglar's family would have sued for lost support. It is typical in California.

I think the homeowner should also sue. Sue for emotional distress. Plus he should tip off OSHA. The burglar was working without a license, union, or protective gear, and under unsafe working conditions, and since the burglar was self-employed...

In these parts, a 12 ga. shotgun loaded with 8 rounds of 00 buckshot is a "home owner's" friend.

Based on the accuracy of facts presented, the old guy will not be found liable.
Interesting though that when he had the burglar covered, he then shot the guy three times...
But all the particulars will get fleshed out in court, and in all probability true justice will prevail.

When he confronted the burglar with his pistol, the burglar begged for his life. In the 90-year-old victim's own words;

"...I looked him straight in the eye. He says,'Don't kill me. Don't kill me... I've got a daughter!' I said,'F- you ... pow, pow, pow, pow!'"

I like this guy!

info: interesting stipulation here , in case you missed it

But Cutrufelli's lawyer, Sanford Troy, says the negligence lawsuit has "extremely good chances" of success if Cutrufelli is acquitted
