Lantana anthrax widow settles $50 million lawsuit against federal government

From the Palm Beach Post:
... While he is legally prohibited from revealing much of what he learned and many of the court documents are sealed, Weisser said he was stunned by the lack of security at the lab. In court papers, the government conceded that before the attacks, Fort Detrick didn't have cameras to monitor the labs and didn't search workers for pathogens when they were leaving the base...

Attorney Jason Weisser said he couldn't divulge the terms of the settlement until it is formally approved by the U.S. Justice Department...
UPDATE:  Judge to hear arguments on unsealing documents in this case.
