Families Seeking Hearing about VT President Charles Steger

Blacksburg, VA - The families of two of the Virginia Tech shooting victims are trying again to get President Charles Steger on trial.

Attorneys for the families are seeking a full state Supreme Court hearing on their request to bring Steger to trial for negligence in the deaths of Erin Peterson and Julia Pryde. A three judge panel denied a prior request last month.

The attorneys argue both women might have survived the April 2007 shootings if Steger and other officials didn't delay sending an alert out.
