Who’s responsible when a mass shooter attacks?

It’s a question that new claims against San Bernardino county are raising in the wake of the deadly terror attack at the Inland Regional Center on December 2, 2015.

Those claims, filed last week by family members of Sierra Clayborn, an environmental health specialist who was among the 14 killed in the attack, seek damages over $200 million and are the first to suggest the county fostered a hostile work environment.

How does that get proven or disproven? We talk with several lawyers about the legal fallout.
