Settlement nearly reached in 9/11 rescuer claims

Over 10,000 plaintiffs sought compensation for injuries, many of which were respiratory-related, alleged to have been incurred while working at ground zero. The settlement amount of up to $675.5 million was to be apportioned among the plaintiffs based upon the severity of their ailments and their levels of exposure to toxic contaminants while working at ground zero.
