Survivors of the mass shooting at Oxford High School are filing two $100 million lawsuits against the school district and employees, lawyer Geoffrey Fieger said Thursday.
The announcement comes more than one week after prosecutors say Ethan Crumbley, the 15-year-old alleged shooter, killed four students while wounding six other students and a teacher.
Fieger filed one federal lawsuit on behalf of Oxford students and siblings Riley Franz, 17, a senior, and Bella Franz, 14, a freshman. Riley was shot in the neck while next to Bella during the attack.
That lawsuit accuses school officials of failing to stop an attack that inflicted physical and psychological injuries on students. Defendants listed in the federal lawsuit filed early Thursday include Superintendent Timothy Throne, high school principal Steven Wolf, Dean Ryan Moore and unidentified counselors, teachers and staff members.
