Families of victims of Marysville-Pilchuck High School shooting settle lawsuit for $18 million

The families of the five Marysville-Pilchuck High School students shot on campus in 2014 have settled a lawsuit against the school district’s insurance company for $18 million, according to documents filed in Snohomish County Superior Court on Monday morning.

The settlement stems from a lawsuit alleging that a substitute teacher had been told of the possibility of a shooting but failed to alert school officials.

The settlement amount was determined by the cap of the district’s insurance policy, which was $20 million, said Lincoln Beauregard, the attorney representing the family.

“The plaintiffs elected not to pursue amounts that would erode the school district’s general budget that is designated for educating and protecting students,” Beauregard wrote in a settlement agreement.

“The facts of this case are tragic, and the errors that led

Mass murderer outrages victims with ranting letter written in prison

August 9, 1987 was like any other Sunday night in Melbourne.

That was until Julian Knight carried out his desire to be Australia’s worst mass murderer.

The 19-year-old had been drinking at a pub near Hoddle Street, downing about five pots of beer.

He’d been rejected from the military college at Duntroon, his ambition to be a war hero was gone. But his hunger to kill had grown.

He walked the short distance to his mother’s house on Ramsden Street and armed himself with three guns; a .22 Ruger rifle, a Mossburg pump action shotgun and an M14 military rifle.

He then walked to Hoddle Street, firing at moving cars. The gunfire echoed around the streets.

And so began a 45-minute rampage, that would leave seven people dead, and 19 people injured.

I was 22 years old in 1999, the year of the Columbine High School shooting. I will never forget my empty gasp and loss of breath as I heard about two young men who entered their school heavily armed and began shooting their unsuspecting classmates.

I couldn’t believe it was real. Why? How? What would push a young person to the point of causing such devastation? This was not the first documented school shooting, but it was the first I can remember hearing about. I felt numb for days afterward trying to wrap my mind around such intentional violence.

Artist Eilene Carver said, “The thought of ‘Small Targets’ originally came from the heartbreaking stories of the Stockton school shooting,
