Columbia Settlement Details Revealed

NASA paid $26.6M to Columbia families, Orlando Sentinel

The space agency recruited former FBI Director William Webster, also a former federal judge, to act as a mediator and adviser in negotiating the out-of-court settlements, according to documents released to the Orlando Sentinel through a federal Freedom of Information Act request."
