A total of of the most severe cases have been selected by two special masters appointed by Southern District Judge Alvin Hellerstein in the litigation brought by more than 9, plaintiffs. Of that group ofsix cases will soon be selected for what are formally scheduled to be trials but are really a path toward settlement.
Two of those sample cases will be selected by New York City, its contractors and other defendants; two more will be selected by attorneys for those who claim injury from the cleanup of toxic materials; and another two will be selected by the judge himself. Those six cases will then steam forward with full discovery according Judge Hellerstein.
By September, they will have been joined in stages by another 24 cases, setting a total of 30 cases on track for the argument of motions beginning in January and trial readiness by May Napoli said in an interview yesterday. We are now studying the cases that they have selected from this first tranche and we will be ready.
He settled on his final plan for the cases in latememorializing the procedure in an opinion issued Feb. To break logjams over discovery, disputes over insurance and other problems, the judge decided to focus first on the most severely injured workers to produce a sample of trial-ready cases that will set the parameters for settlement.
The plan had to take into account a series of complexities that start with the fact that some plaintiffs, including police officers and firefighters, were involved in search-and-rescue missions immediately after the twin towers fell, while others were laborers for contractors involved in the more extended period of cleanup and shipment of debris to the reopened Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island for identification of remains and sorting for evidence in the attacks.
More problems were posed by the fact that some contractors only worked at parts of the acre site while others traveled all over it, some employees were given masks and others were not, different parts of the site contained different toxic materials and some employees smoked or had preexisting conditions.
A difficult challenge was also posed by the fact that, all told, the plaintiffs are claiming that exposure to toxic materials in the air and at the site led them to contract some different diseases, ranging from lethal to mildly irritating.
A further complication was that the disaster site was overseen by a host of city, state and federal agencies, with no clear lines of authority to separate them. The more than 80 defendants led by the city and its contractors claim immunity under various state and federal statutes and doctrines shielding actors from liability when acting in times of emergency.
Those immunity arguments will be a major part of the motion practice early next year. Tyrrell takes the opposite view: Instead, he said, it was intended to cover the city's insurance needs as it defends itself against liability for the alleged injuries to workers.
Complicated Discovery With so many overlapping and intertwined issues, the toughest job in moving the litigation forward has been discovery, particularly with regard to alleged injuries and medical records.
Henderson and Twerski, the special masters, worked with the lawyers to build a structure for a database that requires each plaintiff to give specific answers to some questions, including questions on their injuries, treatments, the hours and places they worked at the site, the warnings they were given and the safety precautions that were taken.
The plan divides the 9, cases into five groups, running from the first wave of cases filed to the last. The first four groups will contain 2, cases each. The fifth group will contain the remainder and any after-filed cases.
The special masters and counsel for both sides prepared severity charts that grade a person's condition on a scale from zero to four. They also selected six major disease categories in which to group the illnesses. The plan kicked off on Jan. Ten days later, the special masters selected from this group the cases ranked most severe, 25 additional cases for diseases that are not necessarily included in the severity chart, and an additional cases at random.
The database for the most severe cases and the 25 additional cases will be completed by April 1. Within five days, both sides and the judge will select the first six sample cases.
Completion of the data base for the cases chosen at random is due in late May, after which each party will choose two more cases and the judge picks another two. Those cases will proceed along on discovery only, with no schedule set for motion or trials.
Testing Strength of Claims Judge Hellerstein explained his logic for the plan in his opinion, saying first that "full discovery on all issues will assure the integrity of each side's disclosures in the database and a thorough testing of all claims and defenses. A basis for settlement, or valuation by trial, should prompt resolution of all such severe cases.
He said the sample of the 30 most severe cases was designed to be big enough so that "values would be created" on claims.Motivation Plan.
