Aurora Theater shooting victims get mediator

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - KRDO News has learned Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has asked mediation expert Ken Feinberg to help set up and administer a compensation fund for victim's of the movie theater shootings in Aurora.

Feinberg arrives in Denver today for a meeting with the governor and board members of assorted charities to decide how to distribute five million dollars in private donations.

Some victim's families have been unhappy with the process of compensation. The July 20th shooting at a midnight screening of Dark Knight Rises left 12 dead and 58 wounded.

Feinberg oversaw victim compensation funds after the VA Tech shootings, the BP oil spill, 9/11 and most recently has been hired by Penn State to help resolve claims of Jerry Sandusky victims.
