A burglar robbed and now sues the store

What is going on with US law? A robber sues a store that he robbed. A robber name Scott Thomas Zeilinski is trying to sue a party store after he was shot in the arm while burglarizing it. He was sentenced 8 - 22 year for robbing Nick's Party Store in Clinton Township, Michigan in 2007.

According to the court's record, he entered the store and put a knife to the throats of several clerks, threatening to kill them. Then, still making threats as he exited with stolen money and cigarettes, Zeilinski was shot in the arm and back by an employee who had grabbed a gun.

The burglar's lawyer filed a suit against the party store this week, seeking over $125,000 for pain and suffering and emotional distress.

This case is almost like the past case on April where a burglar sued Wilson Borough police over the injuries he got during his burglary arrest by a police dog.
