9/11 Memorial Settles with Man Who Queried Safety

The Sept. 11 memorial has settled a lawsuit with a former manager who said he was fired for identifying health and security concerns at the Manhattan site.
    
Court records show Thomas Cancelliere settled this month with the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum. Memorial representatives and Cancelliere's lawyer declined to discuss terms.
    
Cancelliere lost his job as the memorial's facilities director last fall.
    
He said he was dismissed because he alerted bosses to problems including illness-causing bacteria in the memorial's signature fountains and narrow exit gates that could hinder an evacuation.
    
He said supervisors responded that the issues weren't his responsibility or were being addressed. But he said they weren't.
    
A memorial spokesman has said that the site was safe and that Cancelliere was dismissed for bad performance.
