Judge Dismisses Negligence Lawsuit Against Newtown

Action Brought By Two Sandy Hook Families

Editor’s Note: A Connecticut State Court judge has dismissed a  lawsuit brought by two (Pozner and Lewis) of the 20 families that are said to have lost children in the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre event. Defendant Newtown was represented by attorney and part-time gun control activist Monte Frank, the same counsel who defended the township in Freedom of Information actions brought by school safety expert Wolfgang Halbig.

This is the second lawsuit filed by a handful of the families concerning the event that has been dismissed in the Connecticut court system. In 2016 a Connecticut Superior Court Judge threw out a lawsuit against a gun manufacturer brought by a handful of victims’ families. That case is being appealed to the Connecticut Supreme Court.

From Newstimes of (May 8, 2018):

NEWTOWN — A judge has dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit against the town and the school district brought by two families that lost children in the Sandy Hook massacre.

The families’ suit claimed educators failed to follow their own safety protocol when a 20-year-old man shot his way into the locked school.

The judge on Monday sided with Newtown, which argued that educators exercised reasonable discretion in responding to the 2012 slaying of 26 first-graders and educators at Sandy Hook School.

“To say that the faculty and staff of the school were to act in a prescribed manner in responding to an emergency situation would … be illogical and in direct contradiction to the very purpose of governmental immunity: allowing for the exercise of judgment without the fear of second-guessing,” state Superior Court Judge Robin Wilson wrote in a 29-page ruling.

The families plan to appeal.

  1. dé·jà vu all over again !

    One reason these fake families of simulated victims (vicsims) keep filing law suits that everyone knows will be dismissed is to reinforce the official narrative, that is, that there were real parents of real victims at the Sandy Hook school “shooting” event.
    The “two families” who are the plaintiffs in this case

    are parents of Jesse Lewis, age 6
    Scarlett Lewis, mother, and Neil Heslin, father.

    and
    “litigious Lenny” Pozner, father of
    Noah Pozner, age 6.

    These two families share the same attorney, Donald Papcsy.

    The sorrowful family shtick taking their “wrongful death” case to the Supreme Court certainly provides more good optics for the official narrative of Sandy Hook event.

    I certainly hope this case cannot possibly go forward because if it does and it is lost by these plaintiffs, it will establish a horrible precedent of not allowing parents having the ability to succeed in a lawsuit against a school district / city government based on charges related to actions or inactions (failure to act) of school employees deemed to have discretion in “emergency” situations.

    (I do not personally understand how there can be legal cases at without legal establishment and verification of positive identification of victims and positive establishment of the familial relationship of plaintiffs to alleged victims.)

      Unless the entire affair is a dog and pony show. Is there any chance “gun-grab Monte” would use discovery to forcefully depose any of the plaintiffs? Doesn’t appear as if the case even made it that far.
