First Lawsuit From Surviving Child of Newtown School Shooting

- A lawyer who's asking to sue Connecticut for $100 million on behalf of a 6-year-old Newtown school shooting survivor who heard violence over the school's intercom system says the potential claim is about improving school security, not money.

"It's about living in a world that's safe," New Haven attorney Irving Pinsky told The Associated Press on Saturday. "The answer is about protecting the kids."

Pinsky asked this week to sue the state, which has immunity against most lawsuits unless it gives a party permission to go forward with a claim. Connecticut's claims commissioner couldn't be reached for comment Saturday.

Pinksy's client, whom he calls "Jill Doe" in the claim, sustained "emotional and psychological trauma and injury" on Dec. 14 after gunman Adam Lanza forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and gunned down 20 children and six adults inside in one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.

The child heard "conversations, gunfire and screaming" over Sandy Hook's intercom after someone in the office apparently switched on the system, according to the claim. Pinsky said Saturday he didn't know whether his client saw anyone die.

The state Board of Education, Department of Education and state education commissioner failed to protect the child "from foreseeable harm," including by failing to provide a safe school setting, the filing said.

It also said the parties failed to review and carefully scrutinize annual strategic school profile reports from the local school district and Sandy Hook Elementary as well as "other submissions with respect to student safety and emergency response planning and protocol."

It says the parties also failed to require the school and local Board of Education to formulate and implement an effective student safety emergency response plan.

Pinsky said Saturday he didn't want to reveal more about the 6-year-old or details about her experience during the shooting because of privacy concerns.


The attorney said he hasn't gotten a reply from the state yet. The Hartford Courant first reported the filing.


(This kind of nonsense really pisses me off. People in this country have no shame.)

Good luck with that. Like they said unless its a case of a cop killing the wrong person, false imprisonment or something like that, you just can't sue the govt.

VA Tech should of been shut down and administration should of been charged in those killinghs but instead some parents got a measly 6 figure settlement cause the suits were capped. Now that seriously could of been avoided. The guy killed 2, left, then came back for more but the school kept it on the hush.

It's such a "what if" situation though, with VaTech. Privacy laws kept his record sealed. While he was at VaTech he had been taken to the hospital after his roommates told campus police he was going to commit suicide. He was found a danger to himself, not sure if they found him a danger to others, but he was found a danger to himself and ordered to seek mental health treatment by a judge. He didn't follow through with those orders and because of privacy laws, the university was never told. Plus, as a child and teenager he was under care for selective mutism and I think another mental health disorder, but don't quote me on that. He never told the university that nor did his parents/family. It was all kept a secret. He had a few other incidents where the VaTech police were called in, I think for harassing female students. Then he had a professor who alerted the university that he was quite a strange fellow, but there are a lot of "strange" folks out there that never become violent. I wish there was a list of some sort that told us if a person has done these certain things, they will do something extremely violent.

I agree, after the first two students were killed, something more should have been done to protect the other students. After Columbine, there was no more waiting to secure the scene and then go from there. Now, you go go go. The system is never perfect and it's shitty that things like this (and other school shootings) have to occur before we can come up with a plan of action.

The parents of the "second set" of slain students deserve some kind of compensation, but I'm not on board with this Newtown lawsuit, not one bit.

If it wasn't for money, then why such an outrageous amount? Blood money for greedy parents.
