Conn. lawyer withdraws $100M lawsuit over massacre

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut attorney seeking to sue the state for $100 million on behalf of a 6-year-old survivor of the Newtown school massacre has withdrawn the claim — at least for now.

The Stamford Advocate reports that Irving Pinsky withdrew the lawsuit but says he might refile. He says he received new evidence on security at Sandy Hook Elementary School and is reviewing it.

Pinsky last week asked to sue the state, saying his client suffered “emotional and psychological trauma and injury” during the shooting rampage that killed 20 children and six adults. He says state officials failed to prevent his client from foreseeable harm.

The state attorney general said Monday there appears to be no basis to support the suit or the state’s liability.

+1, oldskool. That lawsuit rubbed me the wrong way the minute I read about it. Shakespeare had it right: "The first thing, we kill all the lawyers."

Someone ought to sue the makers of the rifle used. When you create and sell a 30 round magazine you are enabling a great deal of damage to be done if that rifle falls into the wrong hands. Whether or not the magazine was legal is irrelevant to the activity the magazine enables. The maker clearly understood the product could be used in this way and did nothing to prevent that action.
