Sandy Hook School Shooting

Connecticut Attorney General Speaks Out Against $100 Million Newtown Shooting Claim

Says it is "misguided"


Dec 31 (Reuters)—A $100 million claim filed against the state of Connecticut in the wake of a school shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead two weeks ago is misguided, Connecticut's attorney general said in a statement on Monday.

Last week, a New Haven-based attorney filed an intention to sue the state on behalf of a 6-year-old survivor of the Dec. 14 attack—the second deadliest school shooting in U.S. history.
