Families of those killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting will have access to the gunman’s computer as part of their lawsuit against gunmaker Remington.

A state Superior Court judge in Waterbury, Conn., signed off on a stipulated agreement Thursday between the families and Remington to allow a forensic computer expert to examine Adam Lanzas' computer and present digital images of his findings to both sides.

The families are looking for evidence that Lanza, who fatally shot his mother prior to the massacre and killed himself after it, was exposed to advertisements for weapons.

“All the defendants want are the facts the plaintiffs have today that show Adam Lanza was exposed to Bushmaster advertisements,” said James Vogts, a lawyer for Remington, The Hartford Courant reported Thursday.

Lanza used the gun to murder 20 first-graders and six educators inside their Newtown, Conn., school. One of Remington’s ads features the rifle against a plain backdrop and the phrase: “Consider Your Man Card Reissued.”

The AR-15's design is based on the military M-16. There are now an estimated 16 million AR-platform long guns in the U.S.

The lawsuit is expected to go to trial next year.
