First lawsuit for Conn shooting arrives


quote:

MERIDEN, Connecticut (Reuters) - A $100 million claim on behalf of a 6-year-old survivor is the first legal action to come out of the Connecticut school shooting that left 26 children and adults dead two weeks ago.

The unidentified client, referred to as Jill Doe, heard "cursing, screaming, and shooting" over the school intercom when the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, opened fire, according to the claim filed by New Haven-based attorney Irv Pinsky.

"As a consequence, the ... child has sustained emotional and psychological trauma and injury, the nature and extent of which are yet to be determined," the claim said.


quote:

Pinsky's claim said that the state Board of Education, Department of Education and Education Commissioner had failed to take appropriate steps to protect children from "foreseeable harm."

It said they had failed to provide a "safe school setting" or design "an effective student safety emergency response plan and protocol."

Pinsky said he was approached by the child's parents within a week of the shooting.

Yeah, that ain't going to make it in court. Foreseeable danger? There wasn't a goddamn thing about this tragedy that was foreseeable.

Im with you. Be thankful your child is alive. Many familes lost a child. Much worse than some emotional damage.

It's an elementary school in a quiet town. Not fort fricking Knox. Not to mention many lives were saved by quick thinking teachers.

What law firm took this case? Did the parents start it or was it some lawyer's idea?

Comment on Poli Board on subject talks about how he hopes this improves school safety.
This was a random act of violence, there is no planning other than having an armed officer at a school or locking down schools. You take numbers of schools in American and numbers of days kids attend and I would guess you have better shot of getting struck by lightening than this occurring.

i knew it was coming, it's sad but this is America

..just wish there were some way for the judge to rule in that 100 million dollars to go towards a new school, and therapy and memorial funds for the others.
and not give one red cent to these shameless hacks

To stop shootings, you would need a metal detector and officer at every entrance, and then deadbolt every door during school hours. That's not in the budget
