The Castle Doctrine will sheild you against criminal suits - legal action by the state - if the DA and courts agree the shooting meets the thresholds of the law. It will not protect you from civil lawsuits by anyone you shoot or their heirs.

Might not be the same in all states, but that's the way I understand it in Arizona and the way it was explained in the Arizona CCW course.
