Plaintiffs 

The “Dinh Group” of 44 plaintiffs was named after Phuong Dinh,  the most seriously injured surviving plaintiff.  The cases for three of the students killed, and passengers in both Duck 6 and the bus were all joined together.  Injuries ranged from severe orthopedic fractures for example requiring total hip replacements to the “walking wounded.”  Everyone suffered traumatic emotional injury.
