9/11 Workers Refute City's Allegation of Discovery Abuse and Malingering
Date:7/3/2008

NEW YORK, July 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorneys representing more than ten thousand ground zero workers including Police, Firefighters and other rescue, recovery and debris clean-up personnel who became ill after working in the "toxic soup" at the World Trade Center site following the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers One and Two on 9/11 have informed the federal judge responsible for the litigation of those cases that the great majority of their clients are getting sicker as time goes by.

According to an in-depth analysis of the medical records reviewed thus far by the Plaintiffs' attorneys, the ground zero workers suffer from numerous ailments. A typical rescue and recovery worker, on average, suffers from three different diseases. The analysis demonstrates that 38.8% of the workers suffer from asthma; 67% and 57.21% have upper and/or lower respiratory ailments, respectively; 19.88% suffer from sleep apnea; 45.89% have GERD; 5.9% experience interstitial lung disease; and 37.5% have cardiac conditions.

Responding to the defendants' claim that production of the plaintiffs' medical records has been wanting, Plaintiffs' Co-Liaison Counsel, WORBY GRONER EDELMAN & NAPOLI BERN, LLP reported that since discovery of medical records commenced, the plaintiffs have delivered to Defendants' Liaison Counsel 26,331 medical records, cumulatively amounting to more than 821,564 pages of records. At the May 29,2008 Court conference, the City claimed that most plaintiffs had not produced all of their medical records, notwithstanding the fact that they had already received more than 800,000 pages at that time. Since that conference, the plaintiffs have exchanged an additional 58,451 pages comprising 1,548 individual records. As a result, the Plaintiffs' counsel wrote, "[a]t this writing we have now provided defendants' counsel with nearly a million pages of documents pursuant to this Court's orders."
