A man with a CHL shoots and kills a would-be robber. The DA brings him up on charges, but the jury ultimately finds him not guilty of any wrong doing. Should the family of the deceased be allowed to peruse a civil case against the CHL holder?

They can sue, sure. They shouldn't win, though, because he died breaking or trying to break the law.

He should be able to sue the state for wrongful arrest.

Since when has "right" had anything to do with civil lawsuits?

the details of the case would determine whether a civil suit was warranted. sorry did not mean that you had to provide more info.

Ah. No worries. So could you give me an example of where a civil suit would be warranted and an example of where it wouldn't be?

Anyone can sue civilly for anything. Let them sue and let the facts lead where they may.

I'm okay with that risk existing.

I don't know my laws that well but this seems like a double jeopardy type of case.
