Time To Settle Ferry Crash Suits
March 1st, 2007

An editorial in the Daily News entitled
Justice Too Long Delayed approves the ruling of a federal judge that City Hall was horribly negligent in the Staten Island ferry crash more than three years ago that killed 11 passengers and injured many more. It urges settlements to move forward. It is unconscionable that so much time has been wasted in legal wrangling. First, ravenous trial lawyers filed grossly excessive damage claims. Then, Corporation Counsel Michael Cardozo fought back by invoking the antique maritime statute, and the matter has dragged on and on.
