Parkland families reach settlement with school district – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 2021-10-20 13:50:00 –

The family of shooting victims at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland reached a $ 25 million settlement with the Broward School District on Monday. A settlement agreement is still being drafted, said family lawyer David Brill. The maximum payment is paid to 17 families whose children or spouses have been killed, each receiving the same amount. Brill did not provide additional information on the amount or how to split the money. “Given the situation and the fact that the school board is a sovereign immune system, the settlement is fair and noteworthy, but far from sufficient funding to compensate the victims,” ​​Brill said. “Sure, there isn’t enough money to do that,” Broward County Schools told its sister station, WPBF, that it would not comment on the proceedings in dispute.
