Gov't to pay family $17.8M for military jet crash
US ordered to pay $17.8 million to family who lost 4 members when Marine jet crashed in Calif.

SAN DIEGO (AP) ' A federal judge has ordered the U.S. government to pay $17.8 million to a Korean family that lost four members when a Marine Corps fighter jet crashed into their San Diego home in 2008.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Miller's ruling Wednesday comes after a nonjury trial between the Department of Justice and the family.

The family had been seeking $56 million to compensate for the emotional and monetary loss caused by the accident that the Marine Corps said was caused by multiple mistakes.

The Corps has said that a series of mistakes ultimately led the pilot of the malfunctioning jet to bypass a coastal base and fly over neighborhoods toward an inland base.
