Ground Zero workers rally for new settlement
Emergency responders who worked at Ground Zero after 9/11 protested yesterday over delays in a court case that would provide them with money for health care.
In March, a judge rejected a plan that would force New York City to pay 9/11 responders $650 million for health problems allegedly caused by unsafe working conditions.
First responders who gathered at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx say they support the judge for rejecting the settlement because too much of the money would have gone toward legal fees.
Responders say another bill, currently being reviewed by Congress, would provide less money to attorneys and more to people like them.
Lawyers urge WTC workers to take $657M settlement
