$100 Million Lawsuit Eyed in Newtown School Shooting

"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."

    "A lawyer [...] says the potential claim is about improving school security, not money."

    So we can presume the lawyer is taking no pay to work on this?

    Yes, I'm sure this kind lawyer is just dying to break his balls over this. For free.

    For the children. Like he said.
