An attorney in Connecticut has withdrawn a request to sue the state for $100 million in the wake of the Sandy Hook School shooting after facing strong disapproval from people across the country.
The New Haven attorney represents the family of a six-year-old girl who witnessed and survived the shooting.
The lawyer says the state failed to take steps to protect the children from harm.
After this statement Pinsky received a flurry of comments on his Facebook page blasting the lawsuit and accusing him and his client of trying to profit from last month’s tragedy.
This morning the attorney Irving Pinsky joins CNN’s Starting Point to discuss why he dropped the suit and his plans to file again sometime within the year.
