Cyrus Dugger on Tort Deform and 9/11 on Air America at 8

So tune your dials (and computers) tonight The Majority Report on Air America to listen to DMI's Civil Justice Fellow Cyrus Dugger - and Moderator of, DMI's new blog.

He'll be speaking on how America's tort system, which is designed to discourage injured Americans from turning to the courts for relief, has prevented Ground Zero workers who have developed severe illnesses, such as life-threatening lung ailments, from receiving full and fair compensation for their injuries. Cyrus will explain how the plight of the rescue workers is extremely common among all kinds of victims of corporate negligence, as the same laws and legal trickery that was used against 9/11 Heroes is used against regular Americans everyday.
