So the taxpayers have to pay.... I sympathize with the mother who lost her son to this punk, but I wonder how a school can be held responsible for such an attack.
And how much does the lawyer get?
One more caveat: the school district is apparently only authorized to approve a payout of $700K. The rest of the settlement has to be approved by the state legislature.
I hope my fellow Florida FReepers will join me in urging our Republican legislators to say NO to using more taxpayer dollars for this nonsense.

Lousy article, no explanation whatsoever as to why the school was culpable.
