Va. Tech parents continue to press for answers
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.
