REDWOOD CITY (CBS/AP) -- San Mateo County Judge Stephen Hall ruled on Wednesday that 19-year-old Alexander Youshock was responsible for teacher and staff salaries and maintenance costs resulting from the Aug. 24, 2009 attack on Hillsdale High School.
The school was closed for two days.
Youshock's attorney had said his client should not be made to pay $98,000 in teacher and staff salaries for those days since the employees were still paid by the district.
Youshock was ordered committed to a state mental hospital in May after pleading no contest to an attempted murder charge and six bomb charges.
