Hearing cursing, screaming and shooting over the intercom and think their kid should get 100 Million Dollars?
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.
‘It’s not about the money’: First lawsuit filed over Sandy Hook massacre as family of traumatized child survivor seeks $100 million
A New Haven attorney is asking permission to sue the state for $100 million on behalf of a student who survived the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
‘She was in her classroom, and over the loudspeaker came the horrific confrontation between the fellow who shot everybody and other people,’ attorney Irving Pinsky said in the lawsuit filed Thursday.
‘Her friends were killed,’ the claims states. ‘That’s pretty traumatic.’
Pinsky says it’s not about the money.
‘It’s about living in a world that’s safe,’ he said. ‘The answer is about protecting the kids.’
The state has immunity against most lawsuits unless permission to sue is granted.
