The United States federal government was ordered to pay over $230,000 to victims of one of the largest mass shootings in the country where 26 people died and 22 more suffered injuries. This case was tried in federal court through the Federal Tort Claims Act and found the U.S. Government 60% liable for failing to provide the shooter’s prior domestic violence convictions to the FBI. The case is similar to the mass shooting at Virginia Tech and others except the feds settled those cases and admitted their wrongdoing. The results of this case could have long-lasting effects on all states, including Virginia. On Virginia Focus, we’re talking to a lead attorney in the Sutherland Springs Mass Shooting Case, Jamal Alsaffar.
