Parents of Parkland Victims Sue School Board, Sheriff

Parents and survivors of the Parkland shooting say they have no choice but to sue the school board and the sheriff's office after settlement talks went nowhere, 14-months after the tragedy.

Attorney Bob Kelly says the state legislature could resolve this by approving a compensation fund before the annual session ends in May.

Kelly accuses the Broward School Board of secretly hiring a lobbying firm to try and stop lawmakers from approving a settlement fund.

Relatives of the victims say they want people held accountable for failing to stop the massacre that left 17 dead and 17 wounded.

Lisa Olsen's son was injured in the attack and says he still struggles with the events of the day.

She says the lawsuit is an attempt to hold people accountable for their actions.
