PHOENIX - The families of two Arizona children who contracted a rare E. coli complication are seeking $116 million from a town and charter school.

The Arizona Republic reported that an attorney for the families filed 12 notices of claim against the town of Gilbert and San Tan Charter School.

The notices say the complication led to the children suffering brain damage and kidney disease.

The notices say the Gilbert water supply used by the school and conditions at the school the families call unsanitary are potential causes for the disease.

Gilbert and school officials say they were not responsible for the infections.
