Southern District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein has appointed Kreindler Partner
Noah H. Kushlefsky Special Counsel to resolve a conflict of interest in the World Trade Center Disaster Site Litigation.
In an order, Judge Hellerstein concluded that the attorneys representing a group of 59 plaintiffs who had previously made claims to the Victim Compensation Fund had a conflict because they removed the group from the eligible plaintiffs' list for the 2010 settlement, a deal that calls for upwards of $700 million in payouts to those who responded after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, and cleaned up the site.
