Aurora Theater Shooting

Aurora theater shooting: Ken Feinberg named special master of victims fund

In a very brief press conference at the State Capitol announced less than an hour before it began, Governor John Hickenlooper introduced Ken Feinberg as the new "special master" for the Aurora Victim Relief Fund -- almost a full month after victims' families first came together to express their frustrations with the disbursement of donations. The late afternoon event marks the first major public response from the governor and other officials behind the funds -- and Feinberg, who has a background in this kind of work, says he hopes to speed up the process.
