Some Sandy Hook families file notice of wrongful death claims

10 families are filing notices of wrongful death claims on behalf of their children, who were killed at Sandy Hook School nearly 2 years ago.  The Courant reports that the this is the first step in creating estates in the children's names so a lawsuit can be filed. 


The filings do not indicate against whom a lawsuit would be filed.


One notice was filed last week, another is in the process of being reopened in Probate Court.  The Fairfield County probate judge still must approve the eight filings made yesterday.  The probate filings do not automatically lead to further legal action.  The Courant reports that a potential lawsuit against North Carolina-based Bushmaster is possible, the estate of the gunman's mother and the town over security issues.


According to probate court records, the eight estates that were opened Monday are in the names of Benjamin Wheeler, Jessica Rekos, Jack Pinto, Grace McDonnell, Charlotte Bacon, Daniel Barden, Ana Marquez-Greene and Avielle Richman.  Last week, the parents of Dylan Hockley were approved as administrators. The 10th will be the estate of Jesse Lewis, which previously had been filed and closed.
