2nd Circuit Revives 9/11 Workers’ Suit
June 7, 2018
A long-running legal battle between workers who say they became sick as a result of working in Lower Manhattan after the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks and the Battery Park City Authority was revived by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Wednesday.
Napoli Shkolnik of counsel Paul Napoli, who represented a portion of the appellants, said the BPCA had “used every legal maneuver possible to avoid paying these claims,” and this result was not unforeseen given the Court of Appeals’ answer to the circuit’s certified questions.
“We’re happy that finally these plaintiffs might finally have their time in court in front of Judge Hellerstein,” Napoli said.
