Fabrikant continues lawsuit

Convicted killer seeking $600,000 in damages from former Concordia colleagues

Valery Fabrikant, convicted of killing four Concordia University engineers in a 1992 campus shooting, is continuing to pursue his ongoing lawsuit against his former colleagues. Fabrikant is seeking $600,000 in damages over allegations other professors unfairly profited from his work. Fabrikant had been in court in 2007, but the case was tossed out.
