    FAMILY OF SLAIN TEEN FILE LAWSUIT
    The family of a 14-year-old Crofton boy killed in a gang-related dispute last May filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Tuesday against the Anne Arundel County Board of Education and others, contending that school officials knew the youth faced violent threats and failed to protect him. The lawsuit by Jennifer Adkins and David Jones, parents of Christopher David Jones, also seeks $10 million from the parents of two teens who struck Christopher while he was bicycling near home — both youths were convicted of manslaughter as juveniles — and the parents of three juveniles and an 18-year-old who the lawsuit says egged them on.

    MONTGOMERY FURLOUGH PROPOSAL
    The Montgomery County Council heard a proposal Tuesday to furlough all government employees, including school employees, for 1.5 days — a plan that would require buy-in from school system officials who so far have resisted furloughs. However, some council members say that 1.5 days might not be enough, with some calling for up to five furlough days across the board. (Gazette)
