Lawyer withdraws $100M lawsuit over massacre

HARTFORD — A Connecticut attorney seeking to sue the state for $100 million on behalf of a 6-year-old survivor of the Newtown school massacre has withdrawn the claim — at least for now.

The Stamford Advocate reports that Irving Pinsky withdrew the lawsuit but says he might refile. He says he received new evidence on security at Sandy Hook Elementary School and is reviewing it.

Mr. Pinsky last week asked to sue the state, saying his client suffered “emotional and psychological trauma and injury” during the shooting rampage that killed 20 children and six adults. He says state officials failed to prevent his client from foreseeable harm.

The state attorney general said Monday there appears to be no basis to support the suit or the state’s liability.

Taxiing plane clip sparked jet at airport

FORT LAUDERDALE — Authorities say no one was injured when two airplanes got into a sort of fender-bender at a Florida airport.

Fire Rescue at the Broward sheriff’s office says a taxiing Spirit Airlines Airbus A-320 clipped a US Airways Airbus A-320. The US Airways jet was parked Monday night in a remote area away from the gate at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Spirit spokeswoman Misty Pinson says a flight from Atlanta was taxiing to its gate when its left wing clipped the parked plane. Pinson says all 162 passengers onboard got off at the gate as normal, and the plane returned to service.

Authorities say the US Airways aircraft was left with a gash in its tail section.

Firefighters were called to the scene, but there was no fuel leak from either aircraft.
