PITTSBURGH (AP) - A judge has awarded $508,000 to the attorneys who represented the parents of a therapist fatally shot at a Pittsburgh psychiatric hospital.
Harry and Mary Schaab had sued the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center over the 2012 shooting at the center's Western Psychiatric Institute.
Mentally ill gunman John Shick killed their son, Michael, and wounded five others before being fatally shot by police.
The Schaabs settled their lawsuit against UPMC for $1.5 million.
But they ended up suing the law firm that represented them, Farrell & Reisinger. They said they had wanted to sue the gunman's estate and parents but the law firm advised against it.
Monday's settlement ends the related litigation over the legal fees.
