  1. Dead College Star’s Family Denied Compensation

And 13 years on, their $1.8 million will only be paid if Florida’s state legislature approves a Claims Bill specifically for their case — and less than a quarter of such bills are approved. Adding insult to injury, Florida’s last budget was $77.1 billion, with a $1.2 billion surplus.
