    Title: The Sad Results
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:
    • Delayed the opening for One Year

    • $100 Million in repairs

    • Three construction workers killed, several others injured
    • On Dec. 1, 2000, a Milwaukee County jury awarded $94 million in punitive damages and $5.25 million in compensatory damages to the families of three ironworkers killed in the accident. Although the families have been paid $27 million for their loss, the issue of the large punitive damage award is under appeal and in the news every few weeks.
