The suit one of the last linked to the attacks 11 years ago today could give the country its first courtroom airing of airport security blunders, and might end in a staggering jury award.
This could be bigger than your wildest imagination, said attorney Don Migliori, a partner in the Motley Rice law firm in Providence, and an expert on 9/11 litigation. You dont have any idea what will happen if this goes to a jury. Anything can happen.
Lawyers for World Trade Center Properties, which holds the lease on the defunct twin towers, yesterday appealed to federal Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein in Manhattan to set a trial date immediately.
The judge has already ruled the twin towers property owners can seek $2.8 billion in damages. Double that could be awarded if interest is allowed or even more if a jury rules the payout should be bigger.
World Trade Center Properties is asking the court to hold Massport, American Airlines [AMR], United Airlines and other aviation companies liable for the toppling of the twin towers and surrounding buildings.
Likewise, the Lawyers would probably get in excess of $1.5 Billion, whereas the Plaintiffs will recieve $10-Off Coupons for tours of the New WTC.
Osama would be laughing!
Let them start here. He has a few hundred million floating around.
Agree with what you write.
However, the airlines will get their pound of flesh from customers. Glad I no longer fly :)
