Ohio school shooting victims' families sue charity

Posted: Updated:

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) - Relatives of 3 teenagers killed in an Ohio school shooting are suing a charity that maintains a fund set up to benefit victims' families and support the well-being of students and others in the affected community.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday against United Way says more than $950,000 was donated to the Chardon Healing Fund after the shooting last year. The suit alleges the trust wasn't properly administered and says the three families received less than $150,000 and had funding requests denied.

A statement from United Way of Greater Cleveland and the United Way Services of Geauga County says the fund is managed transparently according to its purpose. The groups say more than $417,000 has been distributed to families of the three killed and three others hurt in the shooting.
