The lawsuit specifically names Broward County, retired school resource officer Scot Peterson, Broward Sheriff's Office Capt. Jan Jordan and campus monitor Andrew Medina as defendants.

The account stands in contrast to Peterson's inaction while the shooting was taking place hours later, according to the suit.
