Katie Couric and Epix are being sued for more than $12 million over "manipulated and misleading footage that appears" in gun control advocacy film Under the Gun.

According to the lawsuit obtained by Deadline, members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League are suing Couric, Epix (as Studio 3 Partners LLC), Atlas Films and the film's director, Stephanie Soechtig, for manipulating footage that appeared in the 2016 Sundance film.

The suit states that "the film contains false footage purporting to show members of the [VCDL] sitting silently, stumped, and avoiding eye contact for nearly nine seconds after Couric asked, 'If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?'
