Family sues killers' parents
The lawsuit alleges the killers' parents were negligent
The family of one of the victims in the Columbine High School killings has filed a lawsuit seeking $250m from the parents of the student gunmen.
The suit alleges that the parents of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were negligent in their supervision of the two teenagers.
"Justice demands a full accounting of everyone who significantly contributed to this massacre," Mr Fieger said. "Klebold and Harris could not have developed and executed their violence without the negligence of the parents and possibly others."
Preventing another Columbine
Speaking at a news conference with Isaiah Shoels' parents at his side, Mr Fieger said the case was not about the money.
"We're at a risk that an entire generation of natural-born killers is being nurtured even as we gaze in horror at the senseless and remorseless acts of violence," he said.
Mr Fieger said he might also expand the lawsuit to include school officials, gun manufacturers and any accomplices the two gunmen may have had.
Attorneys for Wayne and Katherine Harris, Eric's parents, did not return calls seeking comment, and a spokeswoman for the law firm representing Thomas and Susan Klebold, Dylan's parents, declined to comment.
Harris, 18, and Klebold, 17, killed a dozen classmates and a teacher and injured 23 students before they committed suicide at Columbine High School on 20 April.
