Sandy Hook School Shooting

$100 Million Lawsuit Eyed in Newtown School Shooting

Lawyer for school shooting witness wants to sue the state of Connecticut, says it's not about the money


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."
