Sandy Hook Survivor Looking to Sue Connecticut Over Shooting
A Connecticut attorney blames the state for the brutal massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, & is looking to sue for $100 million on behalf of one of the survivors.
According to the Hartford Courant, Irving Pinsky filed legal documents with the Claims Commissioner, asking permission to sue the state on behalf of a 6-year-old student.
The Newtown, Conn., resident (only ID’d as “Jill Doe”) was in another classroom at the time Adam Lanza open fire & suffered emotional & psychological trauma.
Pinsky believes that the December 14 shooting was foreseeable, claiming a “fellow like Adam Lanza would have been known as a potential problem to the police.”
As a result, he wants permission to sue Connecticut for nine figures.
The state is immune from most lawsuits, which is why Pinsky must ask for permission to even file the suit; he could be allowed to & after lose the case itself.
Or he could be rejected outright. No decision has been made regarding whether or not the suit will go through, yet it’ll be absorbing to see what happens.
