USC students’ parents file wrongful death suit

WEST ADAMS, CA (BDCi) – The parents of Ming Qu and Ying Wu, the 23-year-old USC graduate students shot and killed near campus, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against USC, seeking unspecified damages.
The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday (16) in Los Angeles Superior Court by Qu’s parents, Wanzhi Qu and Xiaohong Fei, and Wu’s parents, Xiyong Wu and Meinan Yin.
According to USC attorney Deborah Wong Yang, officials met with the families and offered them financial assistance. Their attorney told them to decline and they then filed the suit.
The suit states that USC “actively solicits” students from around the world and particularly from China.
It also states that although the school’s site calls it “among the safest of U.S. universities,” USC does not provide patrols in the area where the students were killed.
But students pay as much as $2,500 a month for an apartment in the patrolled area.
