Today’s the Last Day for 9/11 First Responders to Sign On to the City’s Settlement


Attorneys have through today to sign up 95 percent of potential plaintiffs before the city’s settlement, which could be worth $815 million for the thousands of workers who became ill from the toxic dust, can take effect. Ninety percent have already signed on. First responders are still eligible for the $7 billion September 11 health bill pending in Congress. [NY1]
