VT Victims’ Families Ask High Court To Reconsider Ruling

A request for the Virginia Supreme Court to reconsider the recent Virginia Tech ruling. The high court overturned a lower court ruling that found the state negligent for failing to alert the Tech campus following the first killings in a dormitory in April 2007. The Supreme Court justices ruled that there was no way to anticipate the gunman’s deadly intentions that took him next to a classroom building. The request for the high court to reconsider its ruling comes from the attorneys for the families of two students who were killed.
