(WTVR) - The parents of two Virginia Tech families who successfully sued the state for the death of their daughters are now saying they want to take the President of the University to the courtroom as well. 

The parents are saying the University's President is responsible for the 2007 massacre that killed 32 faculty members and students.

The parents attorneys are asking the State Supreme Court to overturn a lower court's ruling that dismissed President Charles Steger from the wrongful death lawsuit.

Back in March, the families were awarded $4 million dollars each, but a judge reduced the jury's award to $100,000 for each family, which is the highest allowed by state law.
