According to the Free Lance-Star, the beneficiaries of the Virginia wrongful death suit were not awarded any money by the county employees.
The Virginia wrongful death suit was filed for an 82-year-old woman who was killed by three pit bulls in March 2005. A neighbor who owned the pit bulls was sentenced for three years in prison for involuntary manslaughter charges.
The Virginia wrongful death suit was filed against four animal control officers for gross negligence for not removing the pit bulls when they were called prior to the accident.
