Glenn Winuk has Prevailed!

The 25 June 2007 posting for this Blog reported the victory of 9/11 hero Glenn Winuk's family in the Court of Federal Claims. The posting expressed the hope that "the Department of Justice will not appeal Judge Horn's well-reasoned and well-substantiated decision, so that Glenn Winuk's family can hold their heads up high in full knowledge that Glenn's heroic actions are appreciated, and that Glenn Winuk can have his hard-earned and dearly paid rest in peace."

Well, the Justice Department guys/gals did appeal, but, having second thoughts, moved to voluntarily dismiss the appeal. The on 10 January 2008, US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit granted the motion and dismissed the appeal. The LEXIS cite is 2008 U.S. App. LEXIS 1640 (Fed.Cir. 2008).

So now Glenn Winuk is officially a hero. But we all knew that.
