    Likely it will be bargained down, or the jury will come back with an amount significantly less than what's requested but enough to hurt those ultimately responsible.

    The thing is, it's more than just the perpetrators responsible; it's those in charge who did not take due diligence in protecting the child. Procedures should be in place to prevent this from occurring, and if this incident (and the court result) goads other districts into taking steps to ensure this doesn't happen to them, that would be the best result for all children.

    The worst thing that could happen would be to say, "What happens to kids doesn't matter because we don't have the money." And that's what I'm seeing from way too many folks in this diary.
