Parkland Families Sue Broward County School District, Sheriff Over Alleged Negligence

More than 25 Parkland families and survivors have filed 20 lawsuits against the Broward School District, Broward Sheriff’s Office, and others, alleging criminal negligence that put students and teachers in harm’s way in connection with the brutal mass shooting that claimed 17 lives last February, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports Wednesday. “Actions speak louder than words and the victims and victims’ families have been very patient,” an attorney at one of the 13 law firms representing the plaintiffs said in a statement. “It has become clear that the School Board has no intention of taking responsibility the families have asked for, so the patience of these families and survivors who have waited to officially file their lawsuits has ended.”
