Families $10M lawsuits against Va. Tech can proceed

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A judge has just ruled that a lawsuit against Virginia Tech can move forward.

The families of two girls killed in the 2007 mass shooting are seeking $10 million each.

Their attorneys argue that tech leaders were more concerned about image than the safety of students in their initial response to the tragedy.

The other families of the victims have already settled their case with the state -- and cannot sue.
