NYC reached settlement with 9/11 cleanup workers

On June 10, 2010, New York City reached a settlement with the 10,000 rescue and cleanup workers who became sick or injured from responding to the 9/11 attacks. The agreement follows two failed settlement attempts between the parties. The city's insurer, WTC Captive Insurance Company, agreed to pay the plaintiffs $712.5 million, up from its previous offers of $575 million and $657.5 million. Judge Alvin Hellerstein of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York signed off on the legal settlement and immediately urged plaintiffs to take the deal.
