State Appeals Wrongful Death Verdict in Virginia Tech Massacre

 RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The state of Virginia is appealing a jury's wrongful death verdict on the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre that left 33 dead.
 
     The attorney general's office filed the appeal Thursday in state Supreme Court. 
 
     In March, a jury in Montgomery County returned a wrongful death verdict against the state. Jurors awarded each family $4 million but a judge later reduced the damages to $100,000 for each family.
 
     Attorneys claim several lower court errors should reverse that verdict. The state is seeking a new trial.
