City, contractors appeal decision to block WTC settlement
Lawyers for the city and contractors are appealing a judge?s decision to block a $575 million settlement for thousands of Ground Zero workers.
Attorneys say Judge Alvin Hellerstein does not have the authority to block the settlement. The judge initially blocked the payment because he said he felt it was too little of a sum.
More than 10,000 cases of injury are covered by the settlement.
