Hero student, 15, who was shot five times using his body to shield others who were fleeing Parkland gunman is the first to file lawsuit over the deadly shooting
Anthony Borges, 15, is suing the Broward County sheriff's office, school district, and the principal and resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
Borges is the first student to file a lawsuit over the Valentine's Day shooting that left 17 dead and dozens injured
In his two-page notice filed Monday, Borges' attorney writes that the school district and sheriff's office could have done more to prevent the shooting
Borges was struck five times trying to protect 20 other students
He continues to recover from his injuries in the hospital and has not been able to walk yet
As we were discussing in the Georgia teacher incident thread, now we get to watch various government officials make the case that they were not responsible for this student's bodily safety. Hello Discovery!
'The failure of Broward County Public Schools, and of the principal and school resource officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm were unreasonable, callous and negligent,' attorney Alex Arreaza wrote in the lawsuit notice on Monday. 'Such action or inaction led to the personal injuries sustained by my client.'
The lawsuit is likely to be the first of many filed by survivors and victims' families.
When the rubber meets the road, we see how much State officials "care".
The NRA, from what I read, is not being sued for this student's injuries.
