DENVER — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper says the mediator who oversaw compensation for victims of the Sept. 11 attacks will oversee the distribution of money donated to the victims of the shooting at a suburban Denver movie theater.
Twelve people were killed and 58 injured in the attack in Aurora on July 20.
Hickenlooper said Friday that Kenneth Feinberg won’t be paid in his role as a special master overseeing the distribution of donations. Hickenlooper says Feinberg is taking the role “as a patriot in the purest way.”
