Some more interesting lawyer related details about the Red Lake lawsuit…
The deal ends the district’s financial liability for the shootings because state law caps legal claims against school districts at $1 million.
But families and survivors could sue other parties. Attorneys representing the 27 people involved in the school settlement said they are looking at their options.
“Our investigation into the circumstances of the shooting continues as we speak,” said Minneapolis attorney Philip Sieff, who represented 14 people in the settlement. “This is the end of the families’ claims against the Red Lake School District but not the end of their claims in general over the shooting.”
Who the hell else can they possibly sue? Jeff Weise’s father is dead and his mother is severely disabled. The Jourdain’s? The gun manufacturers?
The settlement includes families of the five students killed and the seven students injured, and one student who was in the line of fire. It also includes five surviving school workers, the families of the two slain school employees and a relative of the grandfather’s companion.
I can see a settlement for those who died or were wounded but there seems to be a lot of extraneous people involved in this lawsuit.
