The program will be presented by Gordon Erspamer of Morrison and Foerster who has been lead counsel on major class actions brought on behalf of veterans. He will report on the "Edgewood case" which he filed in January 09 against the CIA and DoD for their human experiments at Edgewood Arsenal and Fort Detrick from 1954 through 1976. Those troops were exposed to toxins, biological and nerve agents during experiments that began in the 1950's. He will also give an undate on the Veterans for Common Sense lawsuit which charges that the VA violates the civil rights of veterans by taking too long to provide mental health care and benefits for PTSD, among other things.
