Judge Hears Arguments in Va. Tech Lawsuit

Monday, 14 Dec 2009 01:20 PM

A judge is considering whether to dismiss a lawsuit by the families of two students slain in the mass shootings at Virginia Tech.

The families claim the school delayed warning the students about an earlier shooting on campus and they are seeking $10 million. A circuit judge is hearing arguments in the case Monday.

The parents of Erin Peterson and Julia Pryde sued the state, the school and employees as well as the estate of the student gunman, Seung-Hui Cho (sung-wee joh). The families have said they want someone held accountable for the shootings.

Most families accepted a share of an $11 million state settlement.

Cho killed 32 people before taking his own life in April 2007.
