One Last Holdout on a 9/11 Trial
Bravo, to these people:
In the nine years since Sept. 11, 2001, the legal claims for people who were injured or killed in the attacks have almost entirely been resolved. Thousands of victims and families entered a special compensation fund created by Congress and were paid more than $7 billion; a much smaller group chose to file lawsuits, which have been settled over time for about $500 million.Certainly, if I had a loved one on that bizarre ghost flight, I would want to know what the hell really happened to them. The article doesn't even touch upon conspiracies in the slightest way, but still, you gotta wonder what that family really thinks.
The name Mark Lawrence Bavis appears on the Sept. 11 memorial in the Boston Public Garden. He was 31 when he died.
All, that is, but one.
The holdout is the family of Mark Bavis, a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175, the second plane to strike the World Trade Center. Ever since the family filed suit in 2002, it has spurned efforts to negotiate, despite settlement attempts and a court mediation session.
