VT Tech Shooting 9-12

The Virginia State Supreme Court will hear arguments Thursday in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by attorneys for the parents of two students killed in the April 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech.

In a consolidated appeal, attorneys for the parents are hoping to put retiring president, Dr. Charles Steger, on trial for what they call his negligence on the morning of those deadly shootings that left 32 people dead.

While the state is hoping to reverse the jury's wrongful death finding in March of 2012.
