Legal case over WTC spire steel settled

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and a Canadian company have settled a lawsuit over steel for an antenna that will sit atop One World Trade Center.

A joint announcement was made Tuesday by the Port Authority, ADF Steel Corp. and WTC 1 LLC.

The Manhattan lawsuit had said the company refused to ship remaining steel for the spire while demanding about $6 million in payments for another project.

One World Trade Center is being built to replace the twin towers destroyed on 9/11.

The antenna will be 408 feet tall when completed.

    Walk down the halls of NYU Langone's Hassenfeld Children's Center and you'll hear Johanna Benthal. The 18-year-old has been in and out of the hospital her whole life, but that doesn't hold her back. "A lot of times I feel like I'm going to heel over and die," Johanna said. "But you know what? There's no doubt that I am not going to do that today." Johanna's speech is delayed because she was born with a rare genetic mutation that causes an abnormal growth of blood vessels in the brain.
