I feel if you sue the deepest pockets for money and not those responsible
the case should be thrown out and it should be like double jeopardy, you can never sue anyone again
Exclusive: Charla Nash’s Lawyer Blames State For Chimp Attack, Seeks $150 Million
STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) - Charla Nash is still recovering from a face transplant and wants to sue the state of Connecticut over the chimpanzee attack that nearly killed her three years ago, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reports exclusively.
On February 16, 2009, a 200-pound chimpanzee named Travis was freely roaming the grounds of the Stamford home of his owner, and Nash’s friend, Sandra Herold when Nash visited.
The chimp attacked Nash, causing her to lose her ears, eyes, hands, and nose in the aftermath.
Bridgeport attorney Charles Willinger, who represents Nash, exclusively told Schneidau that he believes that the near-fatal mauling could have been avoided.
He said the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection ignored its own regulations regarding private ownership of potentially dangerous animals.
