Deal Giving Big Dig Managers Immunity Possible

The AP reports that Governor Deval Patrick showed openness to a deal that would provide for a payment in the neighborhood of $1 billion from Bechtel/Parsons Brinckerhoff, the manager of the Big Dig tunnel project in Boston.  In exchange, the state would not pursue criminal charges and the managers would be released from civil liability from state and federal governments, but not, one assumes, from the family of Milena Del Valle, who died when one of the panels in the tunnel fell on her car.
