A Connecticut lawyer is seeking permission to launch a $100-million lawsuit on behalf of a 6-year-old girl who survived the Sandy Hook shooting.
The state is immune from such lawsuits unless lawyers receive permission, Reuters reported.
Attorney Irv Pinsky filed his claim Thursday with state Claims Commissioner J. Paul Vance Jr.
Reuters said the girlâ€™s parents approached him within a week of the killings.
