Families of the Parkland Shooting Victims Settle With the School District for $25 Million

 The families of the 17 people killed in the 2018 Florida high school massacre, most of the wounded and others traumatized have reached a $25 million settlement with the Broward County school district in a lawsuit that had accused it of negligence.

David Brill, the families’ attorney, confirmed Monday that 52 families from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland will be part of the settlement, which was first reported by the South Florida SunSentinel. He would not say how much each family will receive, but the families of the 14 students and three staff members killed will get the largest shares. Those will be equal.

The settlement comes after the school district had won a state Supreme Court ruling that could have capped total damages at $300,000 without approval from the Legislature.
