Correction Issued to Information About Ground Zero Settlement Protester
New York, New York, March 18, 2010, for immediate release: Avelino Montalvo, an individual widely quoted in the media as negatively portraying the World Trade Center Disaster Site Litigation settlement since it was announced on March 11, 2010 has been found to have an extensive criminal record. A statement released on March 15, 2010 incorrectly stated that “Montalvo is ... not eligible to take part in the proposed settlement.” That portion of the March 15, 2010 release was apparently incorrect; we have been advised that Montalvo is represented by counsel and that reportedly “a notice of claim was filed on his behalf against the City of New York for injuries he sustained as a result of his exposure to toxins at the World Trade Center site following September 11, 2001.” There was no public filing available to verify his status as having filed a notice of claim.
