Lots of incorrect advice in this thread. Each state's laws regarding the civil liability for shooting another person (whether justified under the criminal laws of that state or not) varies, and there is no blanket advice whatsoever which can be given nor accepted. While some states do offer immunity from civil litigation in certain shooting scenarios, there are always limitations and exceptions.

Bottom line is you should expect to get sued if you are involved in a shooting - regardless of the circumstances and justifications you may have.
