A gunmaker being sued by nine families of Sandy Hook shooting victims has subpoenaed school records belonging to five children and four educators who were killed, the Connecticut Post reports.

Driving the news: Lawyers representing the nine families in court on Thursday sought to seal the records requested by the now-bankrupt Remington company.

  • Remington requested attendance records, report cards and other documents for the deceased children and educators, according to court documents.
  • "The records cannot possibly excuse Remington’s egregious marketing conduct, or be of any assistance in estimating the catastrophic damages in this case," the families’ lead attorney, Josh Koskoff, said, per the Post.
  • "The only relevant part of their attendance records is that they were at their desks on December 14, 2012."

The big picture: The subpoena comes as a high-profile case between the nine families and Remington gears up for a jury trial slated for later this year or early 2022. The families are suing the gunmaker for their marketing practices.

  • The families who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook shooting — which killed 20 first-graders and six educators — say that Remington "recklessly marketed a military-grade gun to civilians," the Connecticut Post writes.
  • Remington argues that it manufactured a legal firearm and that the gunman, not the manufacturer, is responsible for the shooting.

President Biden signed an executive order on Friday directing the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to pursue a declassification review of documents related to the FBI's investigations of the 9/11 attacks.

Why it matters: Victims' families have told the president they will object to his presence at next week's 20th-anniversary memorial events unless he declassifies documents that they believe will show the Saudi Arabian government supported the attacks.

U.S. releases updated vaccination, testing rules for foreign travelers

Foreign travelers will be allowed entry to the U.S. beginning Nov. 8 if they can provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination with a shot authorized by the World Health Organization and a negative test within three days of departure, the White House announced Monday.

Why it matters: The updated guidance, which exempts children under the age of 18 from the vaccine requirement, is intended to provide further clarity for airlines and foreign nationals who have been restricted from traveling to the U.S. since early 2020.
