Lawsuit Filed in Bo Morrison Shooting Case

Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP has filed a lawsuit in the Milwaukee County Circuit Court arising out of the Bo Morrison shooting case that occurred in Slinger, Wisconsin on March 3, 2012.

The lawsuit names Bo’s mother, Lauri Morrison, and his estate as plaintiffs, and alleges various causes of action against the homeowner, Adam Kind. The lawsuit also names Kind’s insurance carrier as a defendant.

In 2012, the Washington County District Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute Kind after the shooting death, relying in part on its analysis of the law of self-defense and Wisconsin’s adoption of the so-called “Castle Doctrine.”
