Paying for silence?

The families of two 9/11 victims are apparently poised to reach hefty out-of-court settlements.
Relatives of American Airlines flight attendant Sara Low and United Airlines passenger Barbara Keating plan to withdraw their requests for court approval of deals struck in March, according to legal papers filed yesterday.
Instead, they will file stipulations dismissing their cases in Manhattan federal court, Judge Alvin Hellerstein wrote.
The move would leave just one wrongful-death suit, that involving Los Angeles King hockey scout Mark Bavis, a passenger on United Flight 175. More than 90 families received a total $500 million in damages.
