October 19, 2006 marks the fifth anniversary of the Brentwood Anthrax attacks in Brentwood, Virginia. In October, 2001, two United States Postal Service (USPS) workers, Joseph Curseen, Jr. and Thomas Morris Jr., died from inhalation anthrax they contracted working with mail in the contaminated Brentwood facility. Judicial Watch represented hundreds of USPS workers and a USPS workers’ support group organized as “Brentwood Exposed,” concerning all matters related to the attacks.

Unfortunately, the Supreme Court rejected our petition for writ of certioari on May 11, 2006.
