National Media Cover SGT Lawsuit for Family of Romeo Pierre Louis

April 10, 2023

USA Today, the Miami Herald, the Hartford Courant, and other media reported on Silver Golub & Teitell's lawsuit on behalf of the family of Romeo Pierre Louis, who died after collapsing on the playground of his school in West Hartford.

The lawsuit, filed on April 5, 2023, alleges that teachers stood by for 10 minutes while Romeo lay on the ground and that prompt attention would have saved the boy's life.

SGT partner Joaquin L. Madry represents Romeo's parents in the lawsuit.
