The family of Sierra Clayborn, who was killed in the Dec. 2 San Bernardino terror attack, filed three claims against San Bernardino County this week, alleging it failed to prevent her death. The claims seek $204 million in damages.
Clayborn’s family is the second to file negligence claims related to the Inland Regional Center shootings. Fourteen people were killed when Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, opened fire on a gathering of county employees. Clayborn and most of the victims worked in the county’s environmental health division with Farook.
Last week, the family of Michael Wetzel, a 15-year-county employee, filed claims seeking $58 million in damages. His wife, Renee Wetzel, is seeking $3 million in lost wages and $25 million in general damages for the death of her husband. She also sought $10 million in damages for each of her three minor children.
