A jury in the Melody Ross civil case returned a verdict in favor of the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) Tuesday. The jury awarded no damages, finding the school district in no way liable for the off-campus, fatal shooting of the Wilson Classical High School student on Oct. 30, 2009, according to a press release issued this week by the LBUSD.
“The jury agreed that our school district was in no way responsible for this senseless act of violence that occurred off campus,” said LBUSD Superintendent Christopher J. Steinhauser. “We’re relieved that the real perpetrator of this crime, the gunman, will be held accountable rather than an outstanding school whose staff provides a safe environment. Our hearts go out to everyone who knew and loved Melody, but we applaud the jury for considering all the evidence and applying the law correctly.”
