Claim seeks $100 million for child survivor of Connecticut school shooting

http://news.yahoo.com/claim-seeks-10...003646074.html


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.

Pinsky said he filed a claim on Thursday with state Claims Commissioner J. Paul Vance Jr., whose office must give permission before a lawsuit can be filed against the state.

"We all know its going to happen again," Pinsky said on Friday. "Society has to take action."

Twenty children and six adults were shot dead on December 14 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The children were all 6 and 7 years old.

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.

The shooting, which also left the gunman dead, has prompted extensive debate about gun control and the suggestion by the National Rifle Association that schools be patrolled by armed guards. Police have said the gunman killed his mother at their home in Newtown before going to the school.

*scratches forehead* (look at .gif of castle on kluang's sig to get a better picture)

If this lawsuit goes through... look for Connecticut to jump on the bandwagon of what the NRA is suggesting. (This will be extremely baffling if the case.)

Re: Claim seeks $100 million for child survivor of Connecticut school shooting

The fuck? As if the insanity that both caused and erupted from this shooting wasn't enough.

But the cherry on the cake is the "foreseeable" line. This lawyer is either out of his mind with all the cash he earned by representing this client or he thinks schools should have army-like defense and barbwire all over the place. So he's out of his mind either way.

Re: Claim seeks $100 million for child survivor of Connecticut school shooting

I'm surprised that anyone has the balls to make a claim like this when they still have their child. I'd be beyond pissed if I was one of the parents who lost my kid and this asshole comes out talking about how some cunt's kid heard some scary things. Boohoo, so sad

I couldn't have said it anymore bluntly, blatantly, and eloquently myself....

But remember, this is the country where McDonald's was sued for millions for serving "hot" coffee and one customer spilling the coffee on his/herself.

That McDonald's case is significantly less ridiculous than this, the woman's coffee was legitimately scalding, far beyond a reasonable temperature for coffee, and she had to be treated for decent burn injuries.

Re: Claim seeks $100 million for child survivor of Connecticut school shooting

I think they should sue the children who died, for not having done their survival training with Bear Gryllis efficiently enough.


(Too soon? I mean no harm to the dead, nor do I mean to offend anyone. This is just to underline the stupidity of the law-suit. I am quite horrified about what happened.)
