Va. Tech resists fine over how it handled 2007 mass shooting

Virginia Tech is fighting a $55,000 fine imposed by the federal government, which says the school waited too long to warn students about the 2007 massacre, which left 32 victims dead.

The federal agency imposed the fine in March after finding that Tech had violated campus safety law by waiting too long to notify the campus of a potential threat after two students were shot to death in a dormitory.

An email alert went out more than two hours later, about the time student Seung-Hui Cho was chaining shut the doors to a classroom building where he killed 30 more students and faculty and himself.
