Settlements Possible for 9/11 Rescue Workers

Thousands of lawsuits filed by 9/11 rescue workers against New York City are moving closer to settlements, according to a federal judge.

Close to 11,000 September 11 rescue workers have pending lawsuits against responding agencies and the city, litigation has been going since 2004. The judge who is presiding over the matters mentioned that the parties are looking toward possible group settlements while some lawsuits may still be settled individually.

The cases deal with rescue and cleanup workers who suffer from illnesses they claim stem from working at Ground Zero after the terrorist attacks of 2001.
