Commercial Court upholds arbitrators’ finding that 9/11 attack was a single event
Simmonds v Gammell  1 Lloyd’s Rep Plus 74,  EWHC 2515 (Comm), 14 October 2016
Following the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre, there was a massive clean-up operation by Port of New York (PONY). PONY
was the subject of multiple claims from its employees, consisting of compensation claims by workers (or their estates) who
were either struck by or became trapped under the debris, and respiratory claims by about 10,000 firemen, policemen, clean-up
and construction workers and volunteers, who alleged that PONY had negligently failed to provide adequate protective equipment
or adequate training.
