I'm surprised the killer's family and mom's estate haven't been sued yet.

What would be the point? I doubt they had much money.

Meh. Fine. Didn't know. Don't care.

Looks like the mom got about a million dollars in alimony over four years. The father was out of it, and can anyone explain why he would be liable? So, $40,000 per family. $24,000 after attorney's fees. Big fat hairy deal.

I believe the father, of that piece of shit, is an executive for GE.

This is why one of the 100 or so proposed bills in the CGA included mandatory liability insurance for gun owners.

Would a person be liable if someone stole their keys and drove their stolen car through a crowd while drunk? Better lock up your car keys too.

Adam Lanza was a retard, but he was an adult. What parental responsibility are you talking about?

Not sure what he is talking about, but I'm talking about a Mom who knew that her son was psychotic, and worshipped the Columbine killers, then took him out shooting and allowed him to gain access to the weapons he used to create his own little inferno.

I'll add, having thought about it for a bit during my nice long hot shower, that the parents (1) had a mentally disabled child who would need lifelong care, (2) had gone through a high-dollar divorce, and (3) the father at least had high income and a responsible job. This tells me that they probably were aware of the need for a trust fund for care of their child in case anything happened to them, and that they probably made use of the legal talent that they could afford to set up such a trust. I believe that such trusts usually include protection against being looted for tort liability.

Where those funds would go after both died is anyone's guess. I'll assume the victims and/or their families have their own lawyers who have looked into it.

Further, as Adam murdered his mother, he would be prohibited from inheriting any of her estate, unless CT law is radically different from most or all other states. While there might be a claim against her estate based on negligence in raising a monster, by the time the lawyers got done arguing about that, and note above about trust funds, there probably wouldn't be a lot left to dish out.

Adam Lanza was pretty much a dependent of his mother even past 18 years old.

Liable or not, it doesn't stop someone from taking a shot at getting a settlement to make the lawsuit go away.

So, you care enough to post, but when you look foolish, you magically don't care anymore. Got it.

Keep that '13er tradition strong!!!
