Lawyers Argue Against Tossing Sandy Hook Parents’ Lawsuit

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — Lawyers for the parents of two children killed in the 2012 Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting massacre are arguing a judge should not toss out the families’ wrongful-death lawsuit against the town and its school district.

The lawsuit accuses Newtown of having inadequate security measures. The plaintiffs are the parents of Jesse Lewis and Noah Pozner, who were among the 20 first-graders killed along with six educators.

Newtown’s attorneys in July asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit. Among their arguments are no one could have foreseen the violence that took place that day at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The News-Times reports the plaintiffs’ lawyers said in documents filed in Danbury this week they have “fair reason” to blame the defendants and the case must go to trial.
