State appeals Va. Tech wrongful death verdict



RICHMOND, Va. — The state of Virginia is appealing a jury’s wrongful death verdict on the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre that left 33 dead.
The attorney general’s office filed the appeal today in state Supreme Court.
In March, a jury in Montgomery County returned a wrongful death verdict against the state. Jurors awarded each family $4 million but a judge later reduced the damages to $100,000 for each family.
Attorneys claim several lower court errors should reverse that verdict. The state is seeking a new trial.
