House denies chimp victim’s request to sue state
NORWALK - The state House has voted to deny Charla Nash’s request to sue the state.
Nash was blinded and disfigured by a friend's pet chimpanzee in 2009. She argued that the state knew the animal was dangerous and should have acted to move the chimp from the home.
Earlier this year, a legislative committee also denied her appeal.
The issue now heads to the state Senate.
