U.S. court revives lawsuit by mom of state trooper accidentally killed by firearms instructor

The decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit overturns a ruling by another federal judge who concluded that instructor Richard Schroeter was immune from the lawsuit over the September 2014 death of Trooper David Kedra.

The appeals court’s precedential ruling by Judge Cheryl Ann Krause means Kedra’s mother, Joan, can keep suing Schroeter in U.S. Eastern District Court.
