RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The families of those injured or killed in the 2007 mass shootings at Virginia Tech met for a final time with Gov. Tim Kaine, calling it more of a social gathering than a business meeting.

Kaine hosted the families at the Governor’s Mansion on Saturday, a week before he leaves office.

Kaine agreed to three meetings with the families as part of an $11 million settlement in which the families agreed not to file a lawsuit over the shootings that killed 33 people, including the student gunman.

Two other families filed lawsuits, which are working their way through the courts.

Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell’s chief of staff Martin Kent attended the meeting. The families said they looked forward to working with the incoming governor.
