Mediator Kenneth Feinberg said those victims will get 70 percent of the money, or about $200,000 each, based on current donations.
The remainder will go to people who suffered physical injuries, based on the number of days they were hospitalized.
Mr. Feinberg said claims for the funds are due by Nov. 1.
Wolf hunt begins; animal advocates file intent to sue
MADISON — Wisconsin’s first organized wolf hunt got under way Monday even as animal welfare advocates demanded that federal officials return Great Lake wolves to the endangered species list.
No hunters had reported kills by late Monday afternoon, which wasn’t surprising. The state Department of Natural Resources gives hunters 24 hours to contact the agency, and wolves are elusive.
Only about half of the hunters eligible to buy wolf licenses had done so by Monday. Many said they might wait for snow to make tracking easier. The hunt runs through February.
When federal officials removed wolves in the Great Lakes region from the endangered list this year, Wisconsin and Minnesota set up hunts. Michigan has legislation pending.
In Wisconsin, officials plan to halt the hunt once 116 wolves have been killed.
Zimmerman wants better management of evidence
ORLANDO — Attorneys for former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman said in a motion Monday that prosecutors are dragging their feet on turning over evidence.
Mr. Zimmerman’s attorneys said prosecutors aren’t turning over information in a timely manner and are providing some material in a format that is useless for defense experts to examine. They are asking for monthly hearings to manage the turnover of evidence from prosecutors to defense attorneys.
“The state’s approach to discovery has been to require the defense to figure out what the state has failed to provide and then ask for it rather than fulfilling the state’s legal obligation to provide complete and timely discovery,” attorney Donald West said in the motion.
