Noah Kushlefsky Meets with Newly Appointed Special Master Sheila Birnbaum

On the day she was appointed by Attorney General Eric Holder to oversee the Zadroga Act's September 11 Victim Compensation Fund, Special Master Sheila Birnbaum contacted Noah Kushlefsky to discuss the complicated legal and practical issues involved in the administration of the Fund. The two hour closed-door meeting was comprehensive and productive. Sheila Birnbaum is an excellent choice to oversee the Victim Compensation Fund. She is a New Yorker who is both compassionate and practical, and she understands the monumental effort made by responders and recovery workers at Ground Zero and the significant health issues they face as a result of their service.
