9/11 Lawyer Made Name in Lawsuit on Diet Pills

In the years since the 9/11 attack, more than 9,000 ground zero workers have sued New York City, saying it failed to protect them from the toxic dust at the site that they say made them sick.

Nearly all of them are represented by two lead lawyers. One, David E. Worby, is well known to most of them because he often appears on television and in newspaper articles as a spokesman for their cause. But few of the workers recognize the other lawyer, Paul J. Napoli, or know much about him.
