"The U.S. Department of Education has fined Virginia Tech $55,000 for waiting too long to notify students during a 2007 shooting rampage. The amount was the maximum fine Tech faced for two violations of the federal Clery Act, which requires timely reporting of crimes on campus. In announcing the fine Tuesday, department officials said the violation warranted a fine 'far in excess' of $55,000. Violations and fines are rare, with only a few dozen over the past two decades."
