  • The headline of the article says claim dropped. The body of the article says the state Attorney General denies liability on behalf of the state, which he would do no matter whose fault the shooting was, and does not say the claim is dropped.

    Which is it?
  • Did someone find out who the "Does" were and threatened to out them?

    I would hope that the parents of this family understood that this lawsuit would put them pretty high up on the Douchebag list. I hope everyone is adult enough not to take it out on the child who didn't ask for any of this, but a little public shaming for the greedy parents isn't necessarily a bad thing.
  • Douchbag lawyer return his retainer?
  • Mentalpatient87: This lawsuit is jilldoes.


    We always call it "A Jildoe" instead of "Your Jildoe".

    I saw a different article saying that Pinsky dropped the suit after getting over 50 death threats.
  • I'm sure the family heard everybody talk about the douchebags that were filing the lawsuit and decided it was in their best interest to drop everything.
  • With regards to lawyers, Shakespeare was right.

    /I agree, the scumbag lawyer hoping to cash in on this national tragedy probably thought he would be burned at the stake for filing such a obvious money grab. Crappy lawsuit even considering the ones in the past.

    CTpost.com says the lawyer is reviewing new evidence.

    Wat?
    I don't get it

    Anyway, are there lower parties to the suit?
    You usually name multiple defedants in a lawsuit like this.
  • I think its sick that the parents would try to score bucks off of this tragedy. The school had all
    possible safeguards in place. It's not like the gunman just walked right through an open door
    or anything.

    Well I can see my funny is not needed here.

    Instead, PSA farkers: Mods will ban you if you post fake dicks. I have learned this the hard gelatinous way.
  • "Hey, honey, guess what? Some maniac just shot and killed our 6-year-old kid, along with 19 other children, 6 teachers, and himself."

    "What?  Do you know what this means? It means WE'RE RICH!!!!"
  • Government is completely unaccountable for its own decisions, incompetence, and the inevitable failures, yet this is exactly who the liberal-fascists want to have total control over all aspects of our society. Walk in to your lawyer's office and tell them you want to sue the state. Go right ahead. You'll be mocked, ridiculed, and laughed right out of their office.
  • The unidentified client, referred to as Jill Doe, heard "cursing, screaming, and shooting" over the school intercom when the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School, according to the claim.

    Pinsky's claim said that the state Board of Education, state Department of Education and state education commissioner had failed to take appropriate steps to protect children from "foreseeable harm" and had failed to provide a "safe school setting."


    Is there any lawyer that could defend even the filing of this lawsuit?

    Can a lawyer examine the Connecticut ethics rules and make a reasonable case this lawyer should be disbarred?

    Exactly the message everyone should be taking from this story.

    The only way to stop the liberal-fascists is by shooting them to death, preferably while they are very young.
  • I haven't read any of the threads on this, so it may have been already pointed out, but there's an interesting note about this asshole of an attorney. Every morning on the Today show, when they go outside, there's a creepy looking Unibomber dude holding up a sign and he's always standing right where he knows they're going to stand. The sign is for a lawyer. Irv Pinsky, the same douchebag that brought up this suit. So if you ever need a lawyer and want to give him a call, you can look for his number on the Today show every morning. Still.

  • Anyone involved in filing this suit should be smacked upside the head repeatedly. It's horrible that anyone would even entertain the notion, let alone file a suit.
  • If "Jane Dow" is claiming the shooting was "foreseeable harm", that means she sent her kid intentionally into said harm. That's child endangerment, and she needs to be put in jail, and her kid taken away from her.

    Be careful of the get rich quick lawsuits.
  • I've always enjoyed that the government has to approve a lawsuit against them.

    "I want to sue you"
    "Yeah we don't feel like it"
  • Captain PTMB With regards to lawyers, Shakespeare was right.

    Lawyers point out that line's uttered by Dick The Butcher, a bad guy in "Henry VI", thus an affirmation of lawyers. Now with Dogbert, you can argue that Shakespeare thought cops were dopes, & his glowing portrait of Henry the VIII is way outta line with history, but The Bard's patron Queen Elizabeth the 1st was Henry's daughter so Will S. sold out
