KAUFMAN (March 25, 2013)--A pending lawsuit in Kaufman County could be the first test of a two-year-old Texas law that's supposed to limit suits against outdoor gun ranges.
The suit filed by Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland alleges that county residents near a range operated by a former Army Ranger are "in immediate risk."
The range was shut down after McLelland obtained a temporary injunction.
Adam Morgan, who served tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan and later opened the range on 100 acres of land, is fighting the DA's suit.
A trial set for September could impact how courts interpret a law designed to prevent nuisance suits against outdoor gun ranges, which often draw complaints from neighbors over noise and safety.
