Sandy Hook Survivor Looking to Sue Connecticut Over Shooting

by at . Comments

A Connecticut attorney blames the state for the brutal massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and 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.

Sandy Hook Shooting

The Newtown, Conn., resident (only ID'd as "Jill Doe") was in another classroom at the time Adam Lanza open fire and suffered emotional and 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 and later lose the case itself.

Or he could be rejected outright. No decision has been made regarding whether or not the suit will go through, but it'll be interesting to see what happens.

So! When you come to a bank and suddenly a bunch of robbery come , fire everyone but miss your son, by the end of the tragedy you'll sue the bank for causing you're son on trauma? You must be 100% after the money dude! Otherwise you'll just ask for psychology treatment support.. What a material victim parents..

I agree! Every child in that school will suffer 'mental trauma'...but to try to cash in on it...disgusting! How in the hell could anyone know what that psycho was going to do or where he was going to do it? Just goes to show that the 'ambulance chasers' are still in full swing.
