Va. Tech par­ents con­tinue to press for an­swers

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

At­tor­neys for the par­ents of two of the 32 peo­ple who died on the Virginia Tech cam­pus will press univer­sity of­fi­cials at trial to de­fend their ac­tions dur­ing the dead­li­est shoot­ing spree in mod­ern Amer­i­can his­tory.

The trial is sched­uled to be­gin Mon­day in Chris­tians­burg, Va. It orig­i­nally sought $10 mil­lion for the wrong­ful deaths of Ju­lia K. Pryde and Erin N. Peter­son, but the dam­ages are now capped at $100,000 for each of their par­ents.

The state is the lone de­fen­dant in the case. Virginia Tech Pres­i­dent Charles W. Ste­ger is among the wit­nesses sched­uled to be called.
