Judge orders U.S. to pay more than $230 million to Texas church shooting victims

R/I ~ AA


In his 185-page decision, Rodriguez rejected what he called the government’s effort to “obfuscate its responsibility” by adopting a “no-fault” approach to damages similar to that used to compensate victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Monday’s decision covered about 80 claimants, most of whom were awarded money.

A spokeswoman for the Air Force said it was aware of the awards and reviewing the decision.

In December 2018, a government report said the Air Force had missed six chances to alert law enforcement about Kelley’s history of domestic abuse.
