Lawyers argue against tossing Sandy Hook parents’ lawsuit

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — Lawyers for the for the parents of two children killed in the 2012 Newtown school massacre are arguing that a judge should not toss the families’ wrongful death lawsuit against the Connecticut 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, two of the 20 first-graders killed along with six educators.

Newtown’s attorneys in July asked a judge to dismiss the suit. Among their arguments are that no one could have foreseen the violence that took place that day.

The News-Times reports the plaintiffs’ lawyers said in documents filed in Danbury this week that they have “fair reason” to blame the defendants, and the case must go to trial.
Newtown’s lawyers haven’t commented on the suit.
