Today’s VLW Daily Alert noted a lawsuit faulting Virginia Tech officials for their response to threats of suicide from a student who ended up taking his own life two years ago.
From The Roanoke Times , we now learn the lawsuit ad damnum in the case of Daniel Kim is $43 million. The lawsuit also demands that Virginia Tech cooperate in passing legislation to require public universities to notify parents of threats to the safety of their children.

The deceased student’s family is represented by the law firm of Hall, Sickels, Frei & Mims, the same firm that represents families of two victims of the 2007 Seung-hui Cho shootings at Virginia Tech who are pressing forward with lawsuits against state officials.
