London Fischer Involved in Lobbying Effort to Pass 9/11 Health and Compensation Act (Zadroga Bill)

October 28, 2011

London Fischer LLP, headed by partner John E. Sparling and senior associate Christopher Ruggiero worked closely with Turner, lobbyists and Congress to effectuate the recent passage of the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act (the so-called Zadroga Bill) that reopens the Victim's Compensation Fund with an additional $2.3 billion in compensation for economic losses and injuries and establishes a 5 year $4.3 billion program to provide medical monitoring/screening to eligible responders and community members. The new law will also provide Turner and other defendants with a limitation on liability for the remaining lawsuits that did not enter into the settlement and future cases that are filed.
