Settlement proposed for families of Virginia Tech shooting victims

The state of Virginia has proposed a $100,000 settlement for each of the families of the 32 people killed in the Virginia Tech shooting last April, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported.

The proposal, still being negotiated, was created to prevent families from suing the state. The proposal also will cover any medical and counseling expenses for families and survivors of the April 16 shooting. The families must decide whether to accept the deal. Those who do give up their right to sue the state, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Va., and others.
