Settlement reached in 2001 anthrax death

Posted on October 31st, 2011 No Comments

The widow of 63 year-old man who was killed after being exposed to anthrax during the 2001 attacks has reached a settlement with the U.S. government in her wrongful death lawsuit.

She filed the lawsuit in 2003, claiming the government was negligent in securing the disease at a military laboratory. In an investigation conducted by the Department of Justice, it concluded that a U.S. Army scientist was behind the deadly anthrax attacks.

Her husband was the first of five to die from the attacks after receiving an anthrax-laced letter at his office where he worked as a tabloid photo editor for the National Enquirer. The details of the settlement were not released, but in the widow was originally demanding $50 million in damages.
