I am going on record as saying that within the next 6 months we will see a minimum of 10 lawsuits from the families of the Sandy Hook victims.
These lawsuits will be brought against the school district and not against the state of Connecticut. In order to file suit against the state, they would need to get the okay from J. Paul Vance Jr. They are free to sue the school district without any approval.
The statute of limitations in the state of Connecticut for wrongful death is 24 months. We are almost exactly 6 months away from that date. It is my opinion (*wink*) that there will also be many other lawsuits from parents and family members of surviving students.
