Virginia Tech is facing a federal fine for allegedly failing to hastily alert students about the shooter on the campus during the deadly 2007 massacre.
The federal government is levying $55,000 in fines on Virginia Tech for allegedly breaking federal laws that require schools to report safety concerns in a timely matter. That rampage left 33 people dead.
But Virginia Tech disputes the accusations, and will argue its case before a judge on Wednesday. School officials say they abided by the laws that were on the books and weren't aware a shooting earlier in the day wasn't an isolated incident.
Some family members of the shooting victims are calling the fine inadequate.
