ROANOKE, Va. - Two lawsuits filed over the 2007 mass shootings at Virginia Tech are headed for trial after talks between the state and the plaintiffs didn't produce a settlement.
Special Justice William Alexander had urged the parties to settle out of court and talks were held Friday.
Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hinckler tells The Roanoke Times ( http://bit.ly/zFIWIY) that everyone tried but they didn't resolve the issues.
A jury trial is set to begin March 5 in Montgomery County Circuit Court.
The $10 million lawsuits were filed by the families of two students who were killed. The state is the only remaining defendant.
