Email

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The settlement announced today for victims of the Interstate 35W bridge collapse includes $1.5 million for a memorial commemorating victims of the 2007 disaster.

The money will be a donation from Robins Kaplan Miller and Ciresi and other law firms that represented the victims.

Mayor R.T. Rybak calls it "a new landmark in the history of civic giving in Minneapolis." And, he adds, the "entire city, region and state owes them a debt of gratitude."
