Open to St. John's University Students, Faculty and
The Hugh L. Carey Center for Dispute Resolution is pleased to
present a screening and discussion of:
Out of the Ashes: 9/11
Eleven days after the terrorist attack, the federal government
put in place the largest public entitlement program, the 9/11
Victim Compensation Fund - to deal with this terrorist tragedy. The
September 11 Victim Compensation Fund has been heralded by some as
a successful dispute resolution forum and criticized by others as a
deprivation of justice.
This compelling film tells the stories of seven families
affected by the tragedy as they explore the legal, moral and
ethical ramifications of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund as a
dispute resolution process and its impact on our civil justice
system. The film is produced, written and co-directed by Marilyn J.
Berger, Seattle University School of Law Professor Emeritus.
Professor Berger will lead a discussion immediately after the
screening and refreshments will be served.
