EI Vice President Laura Malowane assists Department of Justice in anthrax mailings case.

EI economist Laura A. Malowane assisted lawyers at the U.S. Department of Justice in a suit filed against them by Steven Hatfill, a biomedical researcher and former Army scientist. Mr. Hatfill, who was named as a “person of interest” in the investigation of the 2001 deadly anthrax mailings in the United States, claimed that his privacy rights were violated during the DOJ investigation. He also claimed that, as a result of the Government’s actions, he lost his current job as well as future employment opportunities. Dr. Malowane, who has extensive experience in analyzing damages in commercial and personal litigation, submitted an expert report and testified at deposition on behalf of the Department of Justice. In June 2008, an agreement was reached between the two parties.
