(Boston Herald)   There is one reassuring constant in American life: when tragedy strikes, be it natural disaster, industrial accident, or act or terror; and a fund is set up to compensate the victims, Kenneth Feinberg will be there to dole out the money   (bostonherald.com) divider line 20

It was over $22mm as of yesterday and my previous comment still holds:

How long before we learn the fund has collected tens of millions and only 3-4% has been distributed?

That IS a pretty impressive list:

September 11 Victim Compensation Fund Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund BP Oil Spill Fund Penn State settlement Aurora Victim Relief Fund Boston One FundIt seems like he's basically made a career out of...hey, waitaminute...do we have  solid alibis for Ken during all these tragedies?

Pretty unlikely.  Feinberg has a good reputation for getting shiat paid.   He was the guy in cahrge of the $20 billion BP put in the kitty after the oil spill and he had a rep for paying legit claims quickly and throwing the BS flag on bogus ones pretty fearlessly

Honestly, this is one of the upsides to donating to known charities. The Red Cross may have it's issues, but you know more of your money is going to relief than administrative costs.

/I'm sure there are already known charities on site in Boston with a better ROI, it's just the Red Cross is the first one that came to mind.

I definitely like the man from what I've heard of him from news and interviews. I know the BP fund management put some black paint on his name but I haven't done any research to find out what happened there.

He seems like my kinda person; too damn stubborn to cheat. :P

Quiet fool! If he finds out you're on to him, the ninjas will attack.

Red Cross Might be a bad example given what they did after 9/11 with the money people donated for 9/11 relief (dropped into thier general fund spent a very little of it on 9/11 relief  and pcoketed the rest)

I guess he is off to Manchester next, sigh.

I mean I hate the red devils as much as the next poorly-informed american soccer fan, but I wouldn't call them a disaster.

One would think so. unfortunately I just learned his nickname is "colt-forty-Feinberg". Maybe not so good then?

/Oy!

I thought this was going to be about commemorative merchandise like all of the low lifes (Including "patriotic" country singers) that cashed in on 9/11.

He really is everywhere.  Anyone got odds on him getting nominated to the Supreme Court at some point?

Oh god, I hope not. The guy is pretty awesome at what he does, but he sure loves him some arbitration and alternative dispute resolution. It's already bad enough that corporations are locking consumers, employees, and everybody else in the world into binding arbitration agreements through contracts of adhesion, but the last thing we need is another justice who'll uphold AT&T v. Concepcion. Plus, dude is already in his late 60s. By the time somebody on the bench kicks it or retires, he'll probably be too old to be nominated.
