This bill is an important step in helping to get monies to the victims and, in cases like the settlement of the September 11 claims, will help expedite such settlements.  A Federal Court judge recently overturned a settlement agreement in the September 11 case because it would have — among other things — provided more than $200 million to trial lawyers instead of the families of the victims and the heroes.
