9/11 Responders Suit Settles; Fairness Hearing Scheduled

The New York Daily News reports on the $575 million settlement reached in the 9/11 "first responders" lawsuits.  As the Daily News reports, Judge Hellerstein has delayed his approval and instead is "taking a week to figure out how big a cut the lawyers will get."   Judge Hellerstein has also scheduled a fairness hearing for April 12th.

Point of Law and Mass Torts Profs each have more on these developments.
