Families request Noblesville school shooting lawsuit moved to Marion County
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — The family of the girl shot at Noblesville West Middle and the parents of the shooter want to move the civil lawsuit to Marion County.
Both parties filed a joint request to transfer the case out of Hamilton County.
Ella Whistler’s family filed a civil suit against the shooters parents on November 19th.
The suit alleges negligence and liability for the action of their 13-year-old son and requests damages.
Whistler and her teacher, Jason Seaman, were both injured during the shooting at Noblesville West Middle School last May.
The civil lawsuit is set for a jury trial.
