Family Can Sue in Columbine Death --November 27, 2001 -- A federal judge ruled sheriff's officials can be sued over the case of a Columbine High teacher who bled to death in the 1999 massacre, saying law officers callously failed to reach him until hours after the shooting had stopped. US District Judge Lewis Babcock said Jefferson County sheriff's officials demonstrated ``a deliberate indifference toward Dave Sanders' plight shocking to the conscience of this federal court.'' The judge threw out the 8 other lawsuits brought against sheriff's officials and school administrators over the shooting rampage. Rescuers did not reach Sanders, 47, until about five hours after the massacre was over. The judge noted that authorities knew the teen-age gunmen were dead about 3 1/2 hours before they reached Sanders. They also knew where he was and knew that he was critically wounded. The federal judge threw out the other 15 civil lawsuits today filed by the families of victims of the Columbine shootings.
