The widow of Mitchell Weiner, the Queens assistant principal who died of swine flu in May, will sue the city, claiming that her husband died because of negligent practices. In a claim filed today, along with her three sons, Bonnie Weiner asks for $20 million to compensate the family’s loss.
The claim targets the city, the education department, the health department, and the Board of Education. (My understanding is that there is no legal difference between the Department of Education and the Board of Education, but this could be an interesting test case of the board’s legal standing.)
