Federal Lawsuit Filed Over Texas School Shooting for Negligence and Other Claims

A federal lawsuit has been filed against eight entities and three individuals for the May shooting that killed 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The lawsuit, first reported by the San Antonio Express-News, was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Del Rio by one parent whose child was wounded in the shooting and two parents whose children were on campus at the time. Attorneys for the parents say it is the first federal lawsuit related to the attack.
