Kate Steinle’s Family’s Lawsuit Over Stolen Gun Dismissed by San Francisco Judge

A lawsuit filed by the parents of the late Kate Steinle, which alleged federal government culpability in her death due to the stolen gun involved, was dismissed by a judge in San Francisco, as Fox News reports.

Steinle was murdered by an illegal alien in 2015, after Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate stole a gun from the parked car of a Bureau of Land Management ranger, and fired it at her while she was walking with her father along San Francisco’s Pier 14. She died from a single shot in the back two hours after the shooting took place.

Although the BLM ranger admitted that it was his gun that had been stolen out of the car and used in the shooting, Judge Joseph Spero dismissed the case and falsely claimed that “there is no evidence that the shooting was in any way connected to the theft.”

The ruling is the latest act of judicial malpractice in the infamous saga of Steinle’s death. Zarate, who had previously been deported five times before he returned to murder Steinle, was acquited on all charges of murder and manslaughter in 2017. He was only convicted of a single count of “being a felon in possession of a firearm;” that conviction was later overturned by another court in August of last year.
