Colleges File Brief on Behalf of Steger


Blacksburg, VA - University and college presidents are standing behind Virginia Tech President Charles Steger in the wake of the 2007 shootings.

Twenty-four higher education leaders have filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the state Supreme Court. It argues that Steger should have immunity from the lawsuit because he is entitled to sovereign immunity as a university president.

The court is expected to hear arguments on the case this summer, a suit brought by the families of two of the 32 people killed at Virginia Tech in 2007.
