Court praises LCBF in approving $265 million MDL settlement

Judge Legrome D. Davis (E.D.Pa.) lauded Mark Landman and client Amtrak in approving the $265 million settlement of claims arising from the May 12, 2015 derailment in Philadelphia, which generated over 120 lawsuits on behalf of over 150 passengers who were hurt and the families of those who died. The court found that their early emphasis on settlement had minimized costs and saved years of litigation, thereby boosting confidence in the courts.  The LCBF team also included John Bonventre and Yuri Brunetti.
